The theft happened just days before Merseyside and the rest of the UK stopped this morning to commemorate the fall with social distance and virtual tributes across the country.

A wreath-laying ceremony was held at London’s Cenotaph this morning, but it was closed to the public for the first time in a century due to a coronavirus epidemic. Only 150 troops were able to take part.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Merseyside Police on Twitter (via પોMarpol CC), or by calling 101.
