Window smashed and blood left on pavement at Grantham restaurant




Barkers Restaurant on Vine Street, Grantham, was forced to temporarily close after one of its windows was smashed.

Owners Jodie and Daniel Barker turned up for work on Tuesday morning to find a window boarded up and splatters of blood on the wall and pavements outside.

Jodie said: “No one had been in contact with us. We had to contact the police ourselves who said that they had been extremely busy over bank holiday weekend. We couldn’t open for over an hour while we tried to deal with the mess.”
