Grave raider pair try to sell Rolex tribute.

Byline: PAUL BYRNE

TWO graverobbers have been caught on a pub's CCTV trying to sell a floral Rolex tribute that marked the 30th birthday of a dad who died in a bike crash.

The footage was passed to police after the dead man's sister Sharron Clarke, 33, pleaded for help on Facebook to find the thieves. Sharron and her mum Maureen, 60, had spent two weeks making a giant Rolex watch from artificial flower petals and floral foam to put on the grave of Andrew, who died in 2012.

A well-wisher told Sharron, of Openshaw, Man-chester, that a man and woman had tried to sell it in a pub. She said: "It's heartbreaking. To steal from the dead is the lowest of the low.

"I just couldn't believe it when I saw them on the CCTV. I felt sick. I hope they are caught soon."
