Hull statue stolen
I was telling you about the statue called Voyage in Hull which I was impressed with. Well, on Sunday 24th July the 6ft twenty one stone bronze statute was stolen from its plinth. The statute was erected to celebtrate the connection between Hull and the Icelandic town of Vik, where a sister statute stands. How does one remove such a large heavy object without being seen? It is quiet down by the Victoria Dock and I guess at night no one much goes there. Even so.....it's not an easy item to walk away with under your coat! I do hope it is recovered soon.
