The Memorial of Elvis owned by the Memories of Elvis Fan Club in Auckland, New Zealand is destroyed by vandals.
Some people walking their dog in the park, saw it lying on the concrete circle surrounding the base, and told the council. who came and took away the broken part and have locked it away for safekeeping over the long weekend.
It must have taken a huge amount of effort to break off the figure, as the whole thing is made of granite set in concrete, and reinforced with steel rods. Unfortunately it is not insured, because being in a public place it is too high a risk, but the Memorial has been standing in Cranwell Park since it was unveiled in January 2000, and nothing too bad has ever happened to it.
