Statement from George and Kate Digweed
Unfortunately Kate and I were the victims of a horrific attack on Sunday night. Masked men broke into the house, I was badly beaten, we were subjected to an horrible period of time, during which they stole money, guns, trophies, medals and my vehicle.
The guns taken were a Benelli Auto and a new Perazzi High Tech.
We are both mentally scarred forever, I'm also pretty sore. I'm going to try and carry on with my normal schedule as soon as I can, and both of us are hoping that the ensuing months and years are a great healer.
Sussex Police have been fantastic and obviously have a detailed ongoing investigation, they are appealing for witnesses, and any information that people may have concerning the incident, would they please contact Sussex police on 101 and ask for Hastings CID on ext 560356.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has sent messages of support in this difficult time.
