Firebombed Romanian shop reopens with local support

Support from the local community has helped a shop selling Eastern European produce in Norwich reopen its doors after it was firebombed.

On 8 July The Village Shop in Norwich was targeted, 15 days after the EU referendum result.

The store, run by a Romanian family, specialises in Eastern European produce and the attack came hours after an anti-Brexit protest in the city.

The local community rallied around the owners and an online fundraising campaign saw donations exceed £30,000.

At the official reopening five weeks later, customers were treated to free cakes to thank them for their support.
