Reader’s letter: Who to call when burglar alarm rings for days at former Marks and Spencer building?

For Sale sign gone outside Marks and Spencer, Great Yarmouth

For Sale sign gone outside Marks and Spencer, Great Yarmouth

Archant

Since last Monday, October 30, the burglar alarm has been sounding on Marks and Spencer’s old building in King Street, Great Yarmouth.

It sounded strong early on but by Wednesday afternoon it had slowed down, no doubt losing its charge. But so annoying.

So, what to do? As I had already seen someone had tried to smash one of the main windows at the rear of the store, splintering the glass pane, I thought I would ring the agents selling the building.

But oh no. Someone or something had destroyed the For Sale sign that has been up since the store closed! How on earth has that happened?

Has it been done by people or nature ie the gales?

Sad though to hear the alarm ringing and no-one taking a blind notice.
