Man to stand trial in connection with Altwood memorial theft

A trial date has been set for a Maidenhead man charged in connection with the Altwood memorial theft.

Adam Brettell, of Evenlode, appeared at Slough Magistrates Court on Friday accused of handling stolen goods. He has denied the charge.

The 31-year-old was arrested after the bronze statue The Companions was stolen from Ray Mill Island in October.

It had been placed there to commemorate four schoolboys who died on a school trip.

To date no-one has been charged with the theft itself.

Brettell was accused of trying to sell cut-up parts of the statue.

His case was committed to Reading Crown Court for trial on February 15.

He was released on conditional bail.
