I was just putting together the show for this week when I came across some news that really saddened me. The newest shop in Ramsbottom, Bang and Olufsen had been broken into. Not only did the thieves break into it once, they broke into it TWICE. Bang and Olufsen has only been opened since the 1st of June this year and in just five and a half weeks to be broken into twice could be massively demotivating.
I spoke to Karön of Bang and Olufsen Ramsbottom to find out exactly what happened and how it’s been in the days since the break-in. Karön was great and despite what’s happened was very upbeat and positive about the town.
This raises the question though, why is there not more CCTV in Ramsbottom especially given the steady increase in crime around the town?
