Reward for stolen plaque ahead of heritage trail launch

One week before its opening, a plaque from Fakenham Heritage Trail has gone missing.
Now a councillor is offering a reward for its return.
Fakenham town councillor George Acheson has spent 18 months organising the trail which was installed over the past few weeks. He said of the plaque: "Its scrap value is very, very small, and they cost a lot to manufacture.
"I'm personally offering £50 for its return, which is a lot more than its scrap value."
While there have recently been reports of vandalism in the area, Mr Acheson did not believe this was the case. He said: "I can't think this was an act of drunken vandalism, since this was securely glued and bolted onto its plinth. Whoever took it must have come equipped."
