Re: Outrage at Haslingden sculpture vultures

Methinks I might have been on the right track then

So it just needs welding back on its feet.

The letter was very apologetic, and there was 50 in cash in an envelope selotaped to the returned statue. I handed it over to Peter Sweetmore and he said it should cover the cost of putting the statue back.

Fantastic news that it's back and it shows some people do have a conscience.

Here is a link to it.....

Police now believe it may have been taken in a drunken prank.

Ch Insp Jeff Brown, of the Pennine division of Lancashire Police, said: "Whilst it may come as a relief to the local community that the statues have been returned, I would still condemn the behaviour of those responsible for removing it.

"The statue was the work of local youngsters who were no doubt extremely upset that it was damaged and removed.
"As far as we are concerned, we would still very much like to know exactly who was responsible and we would like to speak to them."
