CCTV images show a group of children bursting into a Flackwell Heath newsagent to spray the shopkeeper with water guns and bottles.

The group covered their faces with balaclavas to ambush Unit 4 News showering the counter with water on Saturday (June 18) at around 11:50 leaving the retailer “shocked”.

Thames Valley Police are also investigating an assault that took place at the shop the day before (June 17) after the owner, Siva Nadarajah, was hit on the back of the head.

He said: “I have been here for 15 years and it is the first time something like this has happened.

“There is sometimes trouble with the boys but nothing like this.”

The assault happened after the owner asked a number of school children to enter the shop two by two instead as a large group.

He added: “After school finished, ten of them got off the bus and came inside at around 3.30pm.

“I told them to come two by two but they all came inside, they didn’t buy anything, just one bought one sweet.

“At 4.30pm they came again and I told them the same thing but they still all came in.

“They were harassing my wife for speaking slightly different.”

Siva claims that this has been a problem for the last month.

He continued: “It has been a headache for us.

“Politely, many times, I have said to them buy your things and go but they never listen to us.”

A TVP spokesperson said: “Thames Valley Police received a report of an assault at a business in Aries House, Flackwell Heath at around 7pm on Friday (June 17).

“The incident is being investigated and if anyone has any information about this please call 101 or make a report online quoting reference number 43220266033.”

This comes as a spate of anti-social behaviour, including egg-throwing, fires, and racist graffiti has prompted a public meeting in the village.

Bad behaviour has been blighting the village for more than eight months with Chepping Wycombe Parish Council hiring private security to monitor outdoor spaces in the village, while police stepped up patrols on the area, but the ongoing problems have concerned many residents. 

The parish council said the meeting was organised for Friday, June 24, after requests from a number of fed-up residents.

The meeting will be chaired by Cllr David Johncock and PC Jed Russell who will be attending to answer questions. 

The meeting, at Christ Church in Chapel Road, has limited seating, so if you are interested in attending, reserve a place by emailing
