Mystery of the stolen merry-go-round
BAFFLED police have asked for help from the public after a huge merry-go-round was stolen.
The bizarre theft took place in a field in Cattlegate Road, Northaw, last week.
The antique-looking wooden hand-turned merry-go-round would not have looked out of place in hit BBC One show Lark Rise to Candleford, but would certainly stand out if seen nowadays.
Although a police spokeswoman said the thieves would have used a “vehicle of some sort” owing to the fairground ride’s size, officers were at a loss to explain how it was loaded on.
The merry-go-round was swiped from where it was being stored between Thursday, February 3 and Monday last week.
