Biscuit factory tightens security after a gang of 50 kids try to steal the sweet treats

A biscuit factory has beefed up security after gangs of kids tried to get their hands on their sweet bakes.

Burton’s Biscuits in Blackpool were forced to put up an “eight-foot-high-fence” so the youths – some of whom were as young as eight – can’t make it over to pinch their tasty treats.

Peter Turner, the health and environment manager at Burton’s, said: “It has been going on ever since I came here two years ago, and it probably happens three or four times a week.

“At the beginning, it was just two or three, and now it’s coming up to 50 children at a time attacking all our entrance points to the site.

“It’s all times of the day, from late evening to 3 am. We have put an eight-foot-high-fence around and they just jump over.”

He said the company had invested in £30,000 worth of security equipment in an effort to prevent the greedy youths from getting their hands on their stock, but it has done little to deter them, with thefts taking place up to three times a week.

As well as jumping over fences, youths have been reported to brazenly run through the company’s main gates whenever they open to allow access for heavy goods vehicles.
