from the boujy press (oct 15 2012):
Shopkeepers on a picturesque high street arrived to find their windows smashed in a vandal attack.
More than a dozen windows were put through in Ramsbottom, where business owners found their shops littered with broken glass when they went to open up.
Among the stores targeted in the apparently random attack were a cafe, charity shop, gift shop, furniture store and a clothes shop.
It is understood a church and a bank were also targeted in the raid on Bridge Street and Bolton Road. Police have launched an investigation and a man has been arrested.
