£5,000 reward offered after Laurel and Hardy statues stolen in Noak Hill

A £5,000 reward is being offered for the safe return of two Laurel and Hardy statues that were stolen in Noak Hill. 

The life-size figures were taken from outside the home of Peter Elliott and Lesley Haylett on Thursday, 22 July. 

“I was absolutely devasted,” said Lesley. “I’ve had them for years and they are a major part of Havering, everybody knows them.

“I was really upset because my daughter’s dad at the moment, who owns the statues, is in hospital having treatment for leukemia and he is undergoing a bone marrow transplant tomorrow and he is devasted.”

Lesley and Peter also use the statues in their annual big Christmas display which raises between £3,000 and £4,000 for charity each year. 

Unfortunately, it is not the first time they have been taken. They were stolen in 2015 and went missing for three years.

“They were brought back by two guys in a van who said ‘I think I’ve got something that belongs to you’ and he opened the back door and there they were in the back of the van,” explained Lesley. 

“Laurel had a broken arm so he went off to the hospital to be repaired and we’ve had them back outside ever since. 

“I just didn’t dream that it would happen again.” 

Dean Floyd, managing director of Floyd and Son Funeral Directors, is offering a £5,000 reward to help get them back home. 

Anyone with information should contact Dean or Lesley on Facebook. 

Alternatively, you can contact police by calling 101.
