A CAFÉ boss baffled by a giant safe is appealing for answers.

Surf Cafe at Tynemouth Extreme has an old 5ft-by-3ft cast-iron safe slap bang in the middle of it, and owner Nigel Mace is appealing for information on the history of the building to try to find out why such a sizeable safe was needed.

“I know it used to be one open-plan building, but I don’t know what it was used for,” he said.

“I would rather get rid of the safe, but it’s impossible to move. It’s cast iron and encased in 2ft of concrete.”

Anyone able to enlighten Nigel is asked to call him on (0191) 296 4696.
