The owner of a Weymouth beauty salon has been telling Wessex FM of her shock and horror after vandals smashed windows and sprayed offensive graffiti on her shopfront.

Dorset Police have confirmed it happened between Saturday night and Sunday morning at Timanfaya Tans, Nails and Beauty in Great George Street.

The front door glass was shattered and graffiti was daubed on the front door.

Investigations are continuing.

Vicky Davies says it's left her speechless,

"Why? Why? Why would somebody do that? We are friendly, all of my clients love us. We have a real family atmosphere here and I just cannot understand why anybody would try and put me out of business."she said.

It's already had an impact on her business but she's vowing to do her very best.

"I am still taking my clients as normal as I had clients booked in all week - People are walking past thinking we are closed because it's all boarded up, so yes it is having an impact at the moment. I just want to carry on and carry on building things up like I was before."

"If anyone has any information please please contact Dorset Police, just so they can catch them. Is it a targeted attack or is it going to happen to anybody else?"
