Mystery of the Lickey latch

Churchwardens in Lickey are baffled by the disappearance and return of the latch on the gate to the cemetery extension.

When it was discovered to be missing, a replacement was ordered at a cost of £100 – but a few days later the original reappeared, with new nuts holding it in place.

“We thought the latch had been stolen, but why would anybody want an insignificant piece of metal?” said churchwarden Nick Forknell.

“Perhaps it just fell off when somebody used it, and they took it away in order to fix it? Either way, we are very grateful it’s been put back.”
