A town council has said it would “welcome” the return of its new planters after some were stolen in a break in.
Downham Market Town Council expressed its sadness over four of its planters being stolen on Tuesday, October 27 and the damage caused to the place where they were stored.
The planters had been introduced as a recent replacement to the barriers used in the town’s market to “help support social distancing.”
The authority also sent out a warning that the incident is being investigated by police.
A Facebook post said: “We were going to post excitedly about our new planters, which are environmentally friendly, peat-free and add a splash of green to the town centre.
