A MUCH-LOVED high street butcher has had to close its doors after a break in.
The Ginger Pig in Wanstead High Street is closed today (Monday, March 20) after reports of a burglary there last night.
Sorry to announce that our Wanstead shop won't be open today due to a break in. Apologies for any inconvenience, we will be back ASAP.— The Ginger Pig (@GingerPigLtd) March 20, 2017
A spokesman for the shop said: "Our priority is establishing what's happened and the situation inside the shop.
"The police are involved and they are dealing with it now.
"But we want to try to reopen as soon as possible."
The trendy chain opened up in Wanstead in July last year and has been extremely popular with shoppers ever since.
Customers have taken to social media to show their support for the chain in the hope it is up and running again soon.
The Metropolitan Police have been contacted for comment.
