Thieves stole a Heysham man’s ornamental gorilla just days after his funeral.Lynn Richards (pictured) said soon after her father Trevor Judson was cremated, his beloved four foot patio fixture had been carted off.

Lynn said: “We think it’s been targeted because you’d need a van to move it.We think whoever stole it knew he had died.

I just can’t believe it.” The gorilla was stolen from Oxcliffe New Farm Park on September 16. Call 101.
