‘This is a nice little village, and we don’t need that’ - Reaction to robber’s sentencing

There was no sympathy for robber Lee Franklin in Mundesley.

One businesswoman, who did not wish to be named, said: “We’re all glad he’s been caught. It would be nice for him to serve the full sentence he was given, although I know he won’t.

“Dennis, the post office manager, does not deserve that. He works too hard. This is a nice little village, and we don’t need that.”

Staff at The Village Café in Station Road, who also wished to remain anonymous, added: “There was a lot of shock when it happened, as this is a quiet village.”

A member of staff at a ladies’ charity shop added: “He should get four years. It’s a decent sentence for what he’s done. I’m pleased about that.”
