Thieves stole eight brass plaques from a war memorial to sell as scrap.
The tablets, bearing the names of 89 dead heroes were wrenched off a store monument in Lingfield, England, with crowbars.
There are some real scumbags about. Surely there must be something else to steal…have these people no morals at all?
People who go around having no respect for anyone or anything should have a harsh prison sentence, because they probably wouldn’t do it again.
The plaques were recovered after a man tried to sell them to a scrap metal dealer, who alerted the police.
The memorial was restored for Rememberance Day last week.
Three cheers for scrap metal dealers…at least there’s some decent folk around.
