A pub landlord from Doddington was left feeling "shook up" after a masked man threw concrete bricks through the downstairs windows of The Three Tuns at just after midnight.

In CCTV footage a man wearing a balaclava can be seen approaching the village pub before placing bricks on a table.

He then throws the bricks through two of the windows before running off and fleeing in a silver car.

Landlord Rob Leonard said: “We have been at the pub since September 2014 and we’ve never had any problems like this before.

“It shook my fiancée Tina and I up quite a bit, because we feel that this is personal towards us as the person clearly targeted us with intent.”

Rob and Tina were both in bed and still awake when the masked man started hurling bricks.

“We thought we were being broken into as we heard all the glass smashing. It was quite scary to be honest.”

Three hours later, the couple had boarded up the smashed windows and three police cars arrived with five officers.

Forensic investigators are due at the pub this morning.
