Stolen from Sedgefield Cemetery
Items have been stolen from the grave of recently buried father of two Mr Mark Gowland of Sedgefield, who died suddenly earlier this year. His widow Lynne Gowland wants the thieves to return the personal tributes back to their rightful place, and shame whoever is responsible into returning these items. One is a 'dream catcher' with the words "Special Dad" placed on it and was laid on his grave by his grieving daughter.
