An appeal for the return of stolen planks has been made after the theft from a Cemetery in Cowes.
The 24 x 12′ green oak planks were stolen from the Northwood cemetery on Newport Road in Cowes . The callous thief pulled up and stole the wood. It was destined for use in the natural woodland burial ground on the site next to Cowes Medical Centre. The thief would have had to use some considerable effort to steal the wood and would have needed transport to move it away from the site. Many have condemned the behaviour calling it very low and disgusting behaviour. Any information on the theft is asked to Hampshire Police on 101
