Hugh Sutton’s Shop Smashed By Car

In the early hours of yesterday morning (Tuesday 2 May) the famous fish shop belonging to Hugh Sutton was badly damaged by a car which collided with the building after leaving the road and smashing through the  garden. It ended up embedded into the side of the shop,

The occupant or occupants from the vehicle ran off. Police, Ambulance, Rye Fire Service attended and a police helicopter and police dog were called in an effort to find the driver.

Hugh Sutton, brother of the late Jimper Sutton, has looked the business since his father died. The shop has been run by the Sutton family for over 80 years.

The damage to the garden

“Rye’s Own”, along with Hugh’s many loyal customers, hope he can soon get his premises back into the pristine condition that has made it such a popular place to shop.
