Police appeal after charity dolphin sculpture is vandalised 

Part of the 'Big Splash' trail for Hospice Isle of Man

Police are investigating after a dolphin sculpture was vandalised in Douglas.  

Officers are now appealing for help in catching the person responsible.

The dolphin is part of the 'Big Splash' trail which is raising money for Hospice Isle of Man.

It’s located next to the Jubilee Clock on Victoria Street.

A statement from 'Big Splash' organisers said: “We at Hospice have found this very distressing and of course it is upsetting for the artist and sponsor as well as the people who have been to visit the dolphin since the damage was caused.

“This has now been reported to the police but if you see anyone vandalising one of our dolphin sculptures please do let us know by messaging us on our social media pages or report them to the police.

“We want this to be a wonderful art trail for everyone to enjoy so please keep an eye out for anyone who may be trying to spoil the trail for everyone else.”

Anyone who witnessed what happened, or who has information about who is responsible, is asked to contact Police Headquarters or Crimestoppers.
