Police are appealing for information after sculptures on Portland were damaged.

The stone statues were created by the Memo charity project and on display in Bowers Quarry. The project aims to create sculptures of species becoming extinct, in order to encourage change.

Damage includes the head being broken off a turtle and two other items pushed over and cracked.

The incident is thought to have happened between Saturday 2nd and Tuesday 5th August.

Police Constable Kate Perrett, of Weymouth police, said: "The mindless damage to these charity stone sculptures is very sad and we are keen to find out who is responsible.  

"I urge anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area or who may have information about how the damage was caused to contact Dorset Police.  

"All calls will be treated with the strictest confidence."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident 9:352. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
