Scout memorial stolen

Last week thieves stole a life-sized bronze figure of a boy scout from the scout camp at Stoke D’Abernon. The figure was part of a memorial to commemorate those local scouts who died in the First and Second World Wars.

 The camp itself was bought by the Boy Scout Association in 1928 as a memorial to its members.  The life-sized statue was unveiled when the camp opened in 1929.

 The statue had been re-erected only four months ago following restoration work after an attempted theft in 2005 had left the statue badly damaged.
