A 30-year-old woman charged with criminal damage at butchers' shops across the county has had her case adjourned as she has Covid symptoms.
Gemma Barnes, of Dover Street, Norwich, was due to appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court having been charged with damaging two vehicles belonging to Hazel’s Butchers in Corbet Avenue, Norwich, between October 9 and 10 last year.
She has also been charged with damaging Litcham butchers shop, in Church Street, Litcham, between May 15 and 17, damaging Fiddy’s Butchers in Aylsham Road, Norwich on October 7 and Hayley’s Big Baps on Aylsham Road, Norwich, between October 7 and 8.
