In a statement the metalworker said: “It’s literally just had it 1st anniversary of being installed at the weekend, found out today that it’s gone missing.

“It really meant a lot to me to have the opportunity to make a deer sculpture and have it installed so close to where I grew up.”

South Ribble Police are appealing for witnesses or dashcam footage after the theft of the deer sculpture.

A police spokesperson said: “The community have worked hard to design and produce a 2.1 metre tall deer statue which has sadly been stolen.

“Please see attached the images and don’t fawn over it! A lot of hard work has gone into making this, to improve the local area which has now sadly been taken away.”

Anyone with information is asked to email police on 5572@lancashire.police.uk
