THE wooden stocks in Bottesford were destroyed on Saturday night when a car collided with them.

The historic feature, which has stood in Grantham Road for years, was taken away days later.

A resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “It’s a shame, it’s part of the history of the village and somebody’s taken the whole thing away because it’s been smashed to pieces.”
