Dispicable thieves dug up a large tree from a school – and stole it along with two children’s picnic benches.
Peckover Primary School in Leverington Road, Wisbech, is now appealing for information in the hope the items will be returned.
The wooden benches and the tree, measuring around 15 foot in height and believed to be a mountain ash, were taken sometime between the end of school on Friday, April 29, and the beginning of school the following Tuesday, May 3, after the Bank Holiday.
The benches are quite unique as they are both engraved with the words ‘Once Upon A Time’.
Anyone who witnessed anything suspicious, and anyone with information, is urged to contact Wisbech police station on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
