A HAIRDRESSER says she was shocked to find her salon had been broken into causing thousands of pounds of damage.

Hair By The Station in Nelson Road, Dovercourt, is run by Tasha Bray, who started the business in 2012 at the age of just 20.

The salon was broken into last Friday night and Tasha opened the salon on Saturday to find a window smashed and stock stolen.

Her mum Sally Bray said: “Tasha came in at 8am on Saturday morning and found the back window broken and everywhere just in a mess.

“They took lots of stock and caused quite a bit of damage. I would say it was in the thousands not hundreds."
