Statues in Fulham cemeteries that were damaged by "senseless" acts of vandalism have been returned to their former glory following repair work.
Several angel statues were beheaded and a total of nine statues damaged during a string of night-time attacks in Margravine Cemetery, Bishops Park, Fulham Cemetery and All Saints Church in October and November last year.
CCTV footage reviewed by police showed a lone male attacking a monument at the Margravine Cemetery on November 10.
Following the completion of repair works, the statues have recently been reinstalled.
Interim Hammersmith & Fulham Council chief executive Nigel Pallace said: “The reinstallation of the repaired statues is great news. These were baffling, senseless attacks on much-loved memorials commemorating the dead.”
During the two-week crime spree, The Wedgewood Statues - Adoration, Protection, Leda and Grief - together with a later statue Affection, were knocked from their plinths in The Moat Garden at Bishops Park on the October 28.
The kneeling nude statue on the island in Bishops Park was also damaged. All required considerable restoration.
Police believe the vandal, who only ever struck after dark, climbed over walls or railings to access the parks and cemeteries.
Parks Police ramped up patrols following the attacks but he was never caught.
Regular patrols will continue in the parks and cemeteries throughout the spring following the repairs.
Anyone with information on the attacks, should contact The Parks Police Service on 0800 3655 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
