'Stone of Destiny' replica found dumped

Breaking News

An apparent attempt to remove a replica Stone of Destiny from Scone Palace in Perthshire has been unsuccessful.

Tayside Police said the stone was taken and replaced with another sometime between Wednesday and Thursday.

The replica stone was later found dumped in the grounds of the palace although its brass plaque was missing.

The real stone, on which Scottish monarchs were crowned, was removed by Edward I in 1296 and fitted into a wooden chair at Westminster Abbey.
