West Mercia Police Shield

Despite numerous enquiries no light has been shed on the whereabouts of the lost Police Shield and brass plaque which have disappeared from Hagley Library. Worcester County Council, Steve Colella and other members of the library service have been contacted and I still await information.

This West Mercia Police shield was given to the Ladies of Hagley following their support of the force during the investigation into the disappearance and murder of Stuart Gough in 1998. It was a prestigious award presented by the Deputy Chief Constable at Kidderminster Police station. The shield and the brass plaque explaining its origin were then formally hung in Hagley library for safe keeping.


Any information which could lead to their recovery would be most welcome, they are of great importance to us as they mark a time of great tragedy in our community.

Please contact Toni Allison if you have any information to offer. 01562-884079
