The latest addition to Scarborough’s growing statue collection is now in place.

This is the third statue to be donated to the borough of Scarborough by Maureen Robinson and is dedicated to the Scarborough News to thank the publication for using her weekly articles for the past 20 years.

Editor Ed Asquith said: “It is a very generous gesture for Maureen to dedicate the statue to the town’s newspaper. Over the years 1,000s of people have enjoyed her walks and other columns and we thank her on behalf of the community.”

The statue, which now stands in Merchant’s Row, depicts a smuggler and his apprentice and took around two months for artist Ray Lonsdale to complete.
