Pride of Place flowers robbed
RESIDENTS were left angry following the theft of flowers they had planted as part of a Pride of Place Initiative.
Locals in Mountview and Blakestown planted the flowers along a stretch of road as part of the national competition.
It is hoped that they would be named best urban neighbourhood as a result of the project.
The flowers planted in the Sheepmore end were stolen shortly after they were planted, however.
It is suspected that they were stolen to be sold on as they were freshly planted and could be uprooted.
