SCORES of people turned up to Branscombe Village Fete and Football Tournament-but among the throng of people, a sentimental village item went missing.
The BMW football tournament trophy, crafted with painstaking attention to detail by PC Steve Speariett and his colleague, mysteriously vanished during the event, held at the village hall field on Sunday.
The football tournament was won by Branscombe Primary School after they beat the Sea Shanty team 3-0, in what spectators have described as a 'competitive' final match.
PC Speariett has no idea where the trophy may be but is appealing for its safe return to Seaton Police Station in a 'trophy amnesty'

Rich Fuell, who played in the Sea Shanty team, said there was a bit of 'argy-bargy' during the tournament, and, when asked about the trophy, cryptically said: "Maybe it will get washed up on Branscombe beach."

Aside from the missing trophy, the day was hailed as a success and �800 was raised for the primary school PTFA.
Neil Swait, head teacher, said: "It was a very enjoyable afternoon that was well attended by pupils and well supported by parents and the community."
Activities included egg and spoon, bouncy hopper and skipping rope races and a variety of entertainment. Mr Swait would like to thank everyone for their support.
