Police are appealing for witnesses after a string of windows were smashed at a Doncaster pub overnight.

Several panes of glass have been smashed at Loaded late bar on the corner of Printing Office Street and Cleveland Street.

Windows on both sides of the building have been broken with bricks clearly visible on window ledges inside this morning. All but one window was smashed in the incident.

Police have been at the scene and a glazer from Doncaster glazing firm Adrian Walsh has also attended the incident.

The incident happened at 4.05am. Officers attended after being notified around 6.30am and the attack caused around £2,000 worth of damage.

Police are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including CCTV. They are asking anyone who was in the area between 3.30am and 4.30am today, who may have seen the incident or someone acting suspiciously, to get in touch.

Anyone with information should contact South Yorkshire Police on: 101 and quote incident number 118 of 27 June, 2014 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on: 0800 555111.

Loaded bar has been in the headlines recently after the owners Enterprise Inns appealed against a decision to turn the pub into a strip club.

It came despite continued opposition from business owners and a nearby women’s centre.

The planning application requested permission to change the pub into a lap dancing club, was rejected in December, following concerns about the possible side effects on the sensitive work carried out by women’s charity Changing Lives.

But Enterprise submitted an appeal against the refusal to Doncaster Council, which is currently in progress.

Opponents to the scheme include Changing Lives, based opposite the proposed site on Cleveland Street.
