Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, has condemned the senseless attack on the Sainsbury’s supermarket in Perton.
Police were called to the supermarket in the early hours this morning after a man had been reported smashing the windows of the store.
The store is temporarily closed whilst repairs are being made, with the hope of re-opening this evening.
Staffordshire Police have arrested a man and have said the incident is not related to the ‘Covid-19’ pandemic.
The incident comes just a week after both cash machines at the Perton supermarket were vandalised.
Speaking of the incident, Gavin said: “I’m absolutely disgusted at hearing of this news and I’m sure the whole Perton community would join me in condemning these actions. This is a callous and shocking crime at any time, but to do so during a pandemic is all the more awful. Hopefully, the store can return to normal as soon as possible and continue to provide a great service for the residents of Perton”.
