Aberdeen Provost in stolen Queen Mother Hazlehead Park plaque appeal


Aberdeen's Lord Provost has made a personal plea for the return of a bronze plaque with a Royal connection after it was stolen from a memorial garden.

The plaque at Hazlehead Park was unveiled by the late Queen Mother in 1980 to commemorate her 80th birthday.

The theft is believed to have happened between 16:00 on Friday 13 September and 08:00 the following Monday.

Lord Provost George Adam described it as a "particularly despicable theft".

PC Richard Kinghan added: "The plaque is an important part of the Queen Mother Memorial Garden and I want to appeal to members of the public to come forward if they have any information about the theft."
