It is understood the shop is the Rose Cottage Superette.

A neighbour of the shop told a photographer at the scene they come to the dairy often.

“A lovely young family owns it, they only left a few days ago for a vacation. Sadly it seems someone has taken advantage.”

Other neighbours were in shock, some seen shaking their heads.
