Yobs spoiled de­liv­ery of fresh bread to char­ity cafe

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE have been called in af­ter teenagers were caught on cam­era ru­in­ing a de­liv­ery of fresh bread to a pop­u­lar char­ity-run cafe.

Around six yobs were caught on CCTV throw­ing around bread which had been left out­side Ruddi’s Vin­tage Treat Rooms on Manch­ester Road at Linth­waite.

The char­ity which runs the cafe has passed on CCTV images of the cul­prits to West York­shire Po­lice.

Ali Water­worth, who founded the char­ity Ruddi’s Re­treat, said the in­ci­dent was be­ing treated as an at­tempted bur­glary be­cause some­one had tried to force open a stor­age area near to the cafe’s out­door class­room.

She said the bread de­liv­ery had been kicked around in­side the out­door class­room by “id­iots” aged be­tween 14 and 18.

Ali said six teenagers had been in­volved in caus­ing the trouble be­tween 12.50am and 1.40am on Satur­day.

She said the youths had been us­ing the out­door class­room for drink­ing and smok­ing.

The out­door class­room has been tar­geted by yobs sev­eral times and is a reg­u­lar haunt for lo­cal teens.

“I am fed up,” said Ali. “This is the sev­enth time (we have had prob­lems) and this is the third time I have re­ported it to the po­lice. They are in there ev­ery day and are at it all the time.”

Ali has urged par­ents to check on the where­abouts of their chil­dren.

“If my son was out at 1am I would be be­side my­self. These lads need look­ing af­ter and nur­tur­ing. I am dis­gusted with them.”

Ali has posted pho­tos of the ruined bread on her Face­book page but hasn’t pub­lished images of the youths in­volved.

“I don’t want it to be­come a witch hunt. Some­times these kids just want look­ing af­ter,” she said.
