A Budleigh Salterton resident fears the town has ‘changed’ after an artificial grass mat was stolen from outside her beach hut. The incident has seeen counsellor and psychotherapist Sue Claire Morris, 55, of the Granary Lane area, raise concerns about recent vandalism in the area. Her flooring was taken from outside her hut, near Lime Kiln car park.

Sue said: “I just think Budleigh is changing. I am now more worried about vandalism in the town.”

She noticed the mat was missing one morning, after leaving it the night before at 10pm.

Sue said the articial grass had been nailed to the floor but recently disappeared.

The yoga enthusiast, who is training to become a teacher in the field, bought the mat for £15 and had it put down by a friend.

“The mat was really soft to do my yoga on and it is just really irritating, having gone to the trouble of getting a friend to nail it down,” said Sue.

“I didn’t expect some one to rip it up - I cannot believe someone did that.”

Sue has called for the mat to be returned to her.

She added: “To whoever took it, if you do not really need it, please bring it back.”

The theft comes at a time when resident artist Simon Wood had his pebble art trashed on Budleigh seafront.
