Police are investigating after a coffee van belonging to a winner of the TV show The Apprentice was damaged in Llandudno.

An image of the vehicle was shared on Facebook over the weekend showing its front window smashed after being vandalised.

Alana Spencer, who won the BBC show in 2016 and runs the Ridiculously Rich cafe in Craig y Don, later commented to confirm it was hers.

She said: “Hello all, it’s my van. Honestly so upset! We can’t get it until next week. Been waiting on a part for the tire that broke and that just arrived. Now we need to fix this.

“Thank you to all the kind people who have been in touch. As if business isn’t tough enough at the moment. I really hope they catch who did it because it’s just not ok!!!”

North Wales Police has confirmed it is investigating the incident.

A force spokesperson said: “We are investigating a report of vandalism to a coffee bar trailer which was parked near to the paddling pool on the Promenade in Craig Y Don, Llandudno.

“It has been reported that the trailer has received damage to the front window some time between Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th January.

“Our enquiries into this incident are currently ongoing. If you witnessed the incident or might have dash cam footage travelling past the trailer on these dates, please contact police.

“Anyone with information about this incident should contact us via our website or by calling 101 quoting reference 23000055015.”
