A CHARITY which helps people with epilepsy said someone tried to break into its office.

SUDEP Action - which stands for Sudden Death from Epilepsy - tweeted today to say someone had smashed a window at its Wantage headquarters.

CEO Jane Hanna said: "Very sad day for my team and our bereaved community as we came to work to find a broken window and glass all over the floor this morning.

"My team works every day with parents who have woken up to find that their child has died out of the blue in the night.

"I hope whoever did this will never have to experience anything as difficult as that in their life and they will read this and think again about the damage they have caused."

Staff asked people to bear with them yesterday as they may be responding a little slower than usual while repairing the damage.
