Jacque said: “Wallingford is wonderful, there are so many people offering to help – it’s so lovely. But unfortunately a few people went to the pub next door and then decided to fight in the streets.

“We saw the CCTV, watching them fight and the traffic having to stop because they were fighting on the street, then one of them threw the other in the window.

“Unfortunately our window was completely smashed. We’re so busy right now and it’s obviously one of our peak times, so we could have done it without it happening.”

Jacque had placed a toy train in the window as part of his Polar Express-themed Christmas decorations.

The large window was tempered laminated glass and cost over £ 1,000 to replace.

The mother-daughter duo are grateful to ‘superheroes’ Wallingford Glass and Glazing who came to the rescue and replaced the window this morning.

Despite the incident, the couple have been busy all month with Christmas deliveries and orders and even won the local window decorating competition.
