The CCTV from Pure Escapism

Burglars have targeted a Ramsgate business for the sixth time.

Pure Escapism Hair and Beauty, in the High Street, was broken into in the early hours of Sunday morning. The culprits were caught on CCTV footage which has now been circulated on social media.

This time around the pair stole cash from the stores Pringle machine, an iPad, GHD straighteners and GHD hairdryers as well as the staff’s tip money box.

A store spokesman said: “They broke in via fire escape window. It’s no bigger than A4 bit of paper so we didn’t realise an adult would even get through that.
