Police are looking for a bronze ruby sculpture, about 40 centimetres in diameter, which was stolen from the garden of a house in Whaplode.

The ornament, which is said to be of great sentimental value to its owner, was taken overnight between Friday, August 21 and the following day.

It happened on the same weekend when a pair of hanging baskets were stolen from a memorial dedicated to late Whaplode parish councillor Alec Welch outside the village hall.

There were reports of a smartly dressed, middle-aged man driving round the village asking for directions to Randolph’s Bank during the period of the thefts, but it isn’t known whether police are linking this with the incidents.

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 261 of August 22.
