A copper sail which has disappeared from an iconic weather vane could have been stolen by thieves, a resident said.

Dorothy Hurn, of Poulton Road, lives very near the former Adult College on Poulton Road, Morecambe, now Cinnabar Apartments, which has a large weather vane on top known as the Galleon of Knowledge.

She said: “I noticed the sail was missing around the time of the storms in December last year. I guess it could have been damaged then but it’s more likely to have been stolen.”

Lancashire Police said they had no reports of theft.
