A BMX club has been broken into twice in the past month despite recently upgrading its facilities.
Burnham-on-Sea BMX Club, in Marine Drive, has suffered two burglaries causing hundreds of pounds worth of repairs.
Fences, windows, office facilities at their clubhouse and equipment have been damaged and the club is calling for a crackdown on the issues.
The club only upgraded its clubhouse and track facilities in April.
A spokesman for the club said: “This is a local facility run by volunteers, over the past month we have been subject to trespassing teenagers who have caused damage to our property and the BMX track.
“We are working with the police to apprehend those responsible.
“The club is open to the public on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.30-8.30pm and we would love to see people get involved and put a stop to these problems.”
