I was down at Wigan Pier on saturday but could only find two of the four new sculptures.

They was a man looking over a wall and a woman sat on a bench.

Its a real shame but 2 of the 4 sculptures have been stolen. This one opposite the boatyard and another from opposite the coal tippler.

I said 1 of 3 in the description, should have read 1 of 4, whoops

I put wigan pier sculptures on Google. All the info.is there & says they have no scrap value, being made of glassfibre.

It's a shame they were stolen and even worse it was probably stolen to get on the councils nerves. :o)
