A pensioner says she is "heartbroken" after her ornamental meerkat was stolen from her garden.

She is appealing to the thieves to return the two-foot high statue to her residence in Meadow Cross flats, Bushey.

The meerkat, which was holding binoculars and had a solar light in its back, was described as "very cute" by its owner.

She said: "Anyone could have stolen it. I’m heartbroken. I bought it from Morrisons because I like meerkats, I like the adverts. I’m very upset about it really. I was hoping whoever took it could return it to the manager of Meadow Cross flats."

I would love to get a replacement for the lady concerned. She obviously gets a lot of enjoyment from her garden ornament. It is a shame that some people can't just leave others property alone.

I imagine that if the Police manage to recover more than one, then the pensioner will be asked to attend a line-up to compare the solar-powered meerkats.com
