A stonework bench was discovered smashed up on Chapel Street recently – with nobody having any clue as to how it became so damaged.

The bench, outside Marble Place on Chapel Street, was so heavily damaged that it had to be completely removed and is now in the process of being repaired.

However nobody seems to have any idea just how the bench was destroyed in the first place.


Although it could have been the product of vandalism, the amount of force needed to break the heavy masonry work would more likely suggest that a vehicle had crashed into it – however there have been no reports of any accidents from Merseyside Police.

A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “The damaged bench has been removed from the site by our contractors and taken into storage for repair assessment.

“We are unsure as to how the damage was caused.”
