A message left by the Prince of Wales when he laid a wreath at the Aberfan Memorial Garden last week has been stolen.
Prince Charles represented the Queen at a ceremony last Friday marking 50 years since 144 people were killed when a slag heap engulfed Pantglas Junior School and nearby homes.
David Davies chairman of trustees at the Aberfan Memorial Charity discovered the theft while walking in the garden on Sunday as he went to lay flowers at graves.
It was intended for the people of Aberfan and is upsetting for these people at a sensitive time like this.
The memorial has otherwise been uplifting for the people of this village. Words can't describe how utterly low this crime is.
South Wales Police says it is aware of the theft and is investigating.

Police are appealing for witnesses following a shop robbery in Cardiff on Sunday evening.
Officers say two men walked into a store in the Gabalfa area of the city at around 8:45pm before demanding money from the till and threatening the shopkeeper. They later ran off with just a few bottles of alcohol.
The first suspect is described as being white, with a slim build and wearing a grey woolly hat pulled over his face with eye-holes cut out, a dark jacket, and bottoms.
The second is described as having a larger build and being in his 40s. He was wearing a dark jacket, shorts and sandals.
"The threats made to the shopkeeper infer that one man may have been armed with a firearm, but, no weapon was seen so we believe that probably isn’t the case", said Detective Inspector Lloyd Williams.
We would like to speak to anybody who may have noticed two people acting suspiciously or who has information about the incident to contact us.
