A THIEF with a ladder may have been behind a couple of bizarre thefts from two hair premises in the same Taunton street.

The lettering was taken from above Studio 8 hair salon in St James Street.

And the swinging sign over the Wig and Hair Clinic has also mysteriously disappeared.

Paula Walsh, at Studio 8, said: "We're really disappointed someone would stoop so low stealing letters from our salon."

CCTV in the area is being checked and police have been informed.
