The boss of one of Spalding’s best known businesses has put out a plea for a witness to come forward after a window was smashed.

Lizzie Adams, manager of George Adams and Sons, was working in the office when the window was smashed between 9.45am and 10am on Thursday.

Office worker Sarah Palmer went outside and saw two men walking away, but a woman passer-by warned her not to approach them because they had been drinking and were behaving aggressively.

One of the men was saying “if anyone talks to me I am going to let them have it”.

Lizzie is appealing for the woman to come forward and either speak to the police on 101 or contact the business on 01775 725956.

The Adams shop is in The Crescent, but Lizzie and Sarah were in the administration building round the corner on Priory Road.

Lizzie said: “We don’t know what hit the window. It was something quite hard because it made a loud bang.”

She said windows are expensive to replace, but there’s a greater cost involved with all of the time spent putting things right.

Adams was one of many businesses hit before Christmas in a big spree of criminal damage with windows all along The Crescent and neighbouring streets gouged by sharp instruments.

“We had to replace two windows in our shop door then,” said Lizzie.

Police issued a description of the men they are seeking following the damage to the office window.

A spokesman said: “The two suspects are described as being around 5’6” tall, one wearing a blue jacket and a rucksack, and the other a grey hoody and a black padded jacket.”

• Anyone with information about the damage to the firm’s office window or recognises the police description of them should quote incident 114 of January 21 when calling 101.
