London, Nov 13 : John Lennon's famous round glasses have been stolen off his statue at the airport bearing his name.
John Lennon's famous round glasses have been stolen off his statue at the airport bearing his name.

 

The glasses formed part of a 7ft bronze of the ex-Beatle that was unveiled by Yoko Ono in March 2002.

 

Sculptor Tom Murphy said that stealing the glasses of the legendary singer’s statue was shameful, adding that the act has damaged the bronze.

 

"It's a real shame. They were attached to the statue, which has been damaged when they were taken off,” the Mirror quoted Murphy, as saying.

 

“We've put on a temporary pair and are getting a new pair recast soon," he added. 

The memorial stands on a plinth overlooking the check-in desks at Liverpool's John Lennon Airport. (ANI)
