News - Thieves grab 300-year-old trough (Retford)

A GEORGIAN monument, thought to be more than 300 years old, has been stolen from the garden of a house in Retford.

Thieves are believed to have used a trolley to steal the 3ft by 4ft limestone trough from the back garden of a house in Leverton Road in the early hours.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “The very heavy trough, which is 20 inches deep and shaped like the letter D, is then suspected to have been loaded on to a vehicle.

“Anyone who witnessed the theft, or who has any information about the perpetrators, is asked to contact Pc Gareth Nicholls at Retford Police Station on 0300 3009999.”

The theft took place between 3am and 6.45am on September 5, although police only released details yesterday.
