Woman's grave targeted by thieves for a second time

A statue similar to the one pictured was stolen

A thief has stolen a statue from a grave in Derby – three years after the grave was last targeted.

The family of the deceased woman visited the grave, at the Nottingham Road cemetery in Chaddesden, at 1pm on February 6 and realised that someone had stolen a statue from the site similar to the one in this picture.

The stolen angel differs slightly from the one pictured as it had been painted gold. The family had bought it to replace a bronze statue of the Madonna which had been stolen from the grave in January 2014.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 101.
