The baby Jesus in the nativity scene on St Ann’s Square has been dollnapped. The figurine was replaced with a rose.
LAst time I was in St Ann’s Square everyone in teh nativity seemed to have got drunk and fallen over. As security has now been increased perhaps I shouldn’t leave a bot in front of it.
In another nativity scene stunt last year, the figures were put in compromising positions.
Manchester council spokesman Pat Karney said: “I’m shocked and horrified. What kind of a world are we living in when someone will steal the baby Jesus out of the Christmas crib?
“I thought I’d seen everything last year when someone re-arranged the figures into compromising positions, but this has surprised even me.”
