TOWIE's Lauren: I don't feel safe

Lauren Goodger spent months preparing for the salon opening

The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger has confessed she's been left fearing for her life after her salon was torched.

The reality TV star's brand new salon Lauren's Way was attacked just hours after she launched it last week, with vandals smashing the windows and using a suspected petrol bomb. Lauren, 24, has since received threats on Twitter.

She told The Sun: "I don't feel safe. I don't want to be on my own and it's terrifying to think I was targeted."

But Lauren is now angry that the shop, in Buckhurst Hill in Essex, has been destroyed, pointing out that a family with a young child live above the salon and could have been hurt in the blaze.

Lauren said: "My original shock has now turned to anger. Whoever has done this is disgusting.

"There's a child upstairs who could have died and it's just horrible to think someone was prepared to do this - to get me - without a thought for anyone's life."

She added: "Me and the girls spent months preparing for the launch and it's devastating this has happened.

"Stock has been ruined and there's a lot of work to do - but we WILL open again."

Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
