Around £20 worth of coins or ‘wishes’ have been stolen from a wishing well in St Albans, prompting police to launch an investigation.
The coins were taken from the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust well sometime between 4.30pm on Friday, October 10 and around 11am on Tuesday, October 14 in Verulamium Park.
Thieves forced a padlock and removed a secure metal covering over the wishing well before taking the coins.
PC Sean Lannon is investigating and said: “If you were in this area of the park between these dates and have any information which would assist the investigation I would like to hear from you.
“It is possible that the offenders would have been there for some time so I am confident someone must know something.”
