THESE were stolen from the corner of Eastbourne and Val Prinseps Road, Pevensey Bay at around 7.45pm on December 21.

They are huge and cast iron in an anthracite grey, and come in three pieces. They are very old, very similar to the photo but the handles are a little higher up.

The thief propped open the front gate and loaded them bit by bit into his car – police are aware and have all the CCTV footage.

“This is a vulnerable couple and any information would be much appreciated..I hope the thieving scum are caught”
