A man was arrested at the scene.

As reported, the business was severely damaged in the 2013 floods.

During the tidal surge on December 5, which was the biggest in Wells' history, floodwaters smashed through the back doors destroying seven fridges and freezers.

The floor also had to be replaced and all the paperwork in the office was ruined.
