Mr Karia installed a new shop front following the raid in April but is now seeking retrospective planning consent from Fenland District Council.

He told planners: “Due to a ram raid the shop front has been replaced as an urgent requirement to secure the property and retail stock.

“Whilst replacing the shop front, the opportunity was taken to relocate the access door and widen it to allow disabled access and make the door automatic”.

He’s accompanied his application with photos of what the post office looked before the raid, photos of the raid itself, and what it looks like today.
