A memorial for a grandfather and grandson who were killed in a crash in Linton has been stolen from the scene.

The memorial to Michael Kidd, 66, and Joshua Bysouth, 13, was stolen between noon and 7pm on September 22 on the A1307 at Linton.
It had been at the site since the crash at the Balsham staggered junction on Sunday, September 18, 2011.
Michael and Joshua, of Stanleys Farm Road, Saffron Walden, were travelling in a Hyundai Getz that was in collision with an Audi A3.
PC Jay Taylor, who is investigating, said: "There is no reason why anyone should have taken this memorial down so we are treating it as theft.
"It is obviously very upsetting for the family: Joshua's father Paul made the wooden cross and engraved it himself with the names of his son and father.
"I would urge anyone with information about who took the memorial or where it is now to contact me."

Paul Bysouth, Joshua's Dad spoke to Heart, "At first I was very, very cross, I' still angry, but all I want is for them to bring it back. I don't understand why they would want to do that kind of thing.

"We take our children, and the family goes down there every birthday, every Christmas, every anniversary of the death we go down there, we take flowers, lots of his friends go down there and take flowers too."
Anyone with information should contact PC Taylor on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
