Twickenham War Memorial Stolen


Metal thieves have been taking a break from disrupting train services and lifting manhole covers to pinch a war memorial in Twickenham.

The stolen bronze plaque is the latest in what the BBC calls a 'costly and annoying' series of thefts. The soaring cost of scrap metal has led to a corresponding increase in its theft. Even bus stops have gone missing.

Sadly, Twickenham council says it is unable to replace the memorial before Remembrance Day.

Even dodgy scrap merchants would know the background of a war memorial !
