* The broken windows at Proadventure in Castle Street.
llanblogger commentLlangollen has seen a spate of vandalism and crime over the past week of the sort it does not normally witness.
First, on Thursday, what appeared to be a huge slab of concrete was used to smash the two glass front doors of Proadventure in Castle Street.
Also this morning we learn from Facebook that the Chainbridge Hotel had been broken into during the early hours.Its post said: “WARNING TO ALL IN THE LLANGOLLEN AREA - we have been broken into overnight. Three males, in hoods, at 1.00am. If you have any information please pass it on. Please also be vigilant. They left the hotel in a dark hatchback, heading towards Llangollen. The hotel will be open to the public as normal today. Thank you”.

There are now likely to be calls for extra police vigilance which llanblogger believes must be heeded.
It is a well-known fact that police resources are under extreme pressure and that, in the general scheme of things, Lllangollen is identified as a low-crime area.However, that does not take away from the fact that we have a right to receive adequate policing and that these incidents should be thoroughly examined and action taken to see avoid a pattern of lawlessness being established as it has in other areas not too far from here.
