Fallen Gormleys

Thank you to everyone who reported 'missing' Gormley statues today. They have in fact fallen over...no alcohol involved...just lots of water. When the river is in spate and a flood risk possible the statues will fall over so they do not impede the flow of the river or get damaged by large items washing down the river. The heavy rain over the last few days caused a large rise in river levels toppling Powderhall man and Bonnington man. The National Galleries have been altered and will right the statues as soon as possible
