Message carved on door
THE owner of one of Penzance's most prominent stores and funeral directors says she is "incensed" after two lovers' names were carved into the door of a chapel of rest by a group of drunken adults.
Sue Wilkinson said that four men and one woman and all in their twenties, were involved in the incident at Alfred Smith and Son's chapel of rest by the flowerbeds facing St John's Hall at around 4.30pm on Saturday, August 24.
One of the men carved "Gary + Amy xxx" into one of the doors.
The damage means both chapel of rest doors will have to be sanded down and restained.

Mrs Wilkinson said: "I am quite incensed; a member of staff was helping a customer to their car with a purchase when the incident took place and he felt quite intimidated as they started shouting at him.
"This was done in broad daylight and when challenged they became quite aggressive. Why should we all have to put up with this type of behaviour?
"I am keen for these people to be prosecuted – the town needs to get its act together and not allow this sort of thing to happen."
Police are asking witnesses to call 101.
