Man who sold parts of memorial statue to be sentenced today

A Maidenhead man is due to be sentenced today for his part in the loss of the Altwood schoolboy memorial.

Adam Brettell, 31, of Evenlode, was caught selling parts of the cut-up bronze to a scrap metal merchant.

Last month he admitted handling stolen goods and was released on conditional bail.

He is listed to appear back at Reading Crown Court today, sometime after 2pm, for sentencing.

The Companions was stolen from Ray Mill Island in October last year.

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

A campaign is underway to replace it with an exact replica.

To date no one has been charged with the theft.
