A FATHER has spoken of his heartbreak after thieves stole stone flags from his son’s memorial, saying ‘nobody knows how much it hurts.’

Ronnie Hinchliffe’s son, Paul Lee, died of Leukaemia a week after his 21st birthday in 1993 and a stone monument was built in the playing fields in Shaw Cross in his memory.

But Mr Hinchliffe’s daughter, Linda Jewitt, discovered the memorial had been desecrated by vandals who removed three Yorkshire stone flags from the site earlier this month.
