The two metre high gates, which were decorated with her majesty’s initials, were taken from Oakes family playing field in Cawston, after they were removed from their posts.

Police are now investigating the theft and appealing for witnesses and information.

The ornamental gates, worth several thousand pounds, were funded by the parish council and installed to mark the Queen’s 60th jubilee in 2012.

A sister set of gates were also put up in Chapel Street.

The playing field gates were taken between 7.30pm on Friday, December 20 and midday on Sunday, December 22.

Police are keen to hear from anyone with information about the incident, particularly whether any vehicle was seen in the area in suspicious circumstances, or anyone who knows the whereabouts of the gates.

Call the Reepham policing team on 101.
