Otley Mills memorial hit by thieves for third time

Last year, the bronze statue of a serviceman that stood on top of the memorial was stolen for the second time.  It has not been recovered.  Then in July this year the bronze name plaques were prised off.  They too have not been recovered and there are concerns that the list of names have not been recorded elsewhere.
