Billy Wright statue: Repairs to damaged Wolves landmark won't start for at least a month

Billy Wright statue: Repairs to damaged Wolves landmark won

The full extent of the damage has still to be assessed and other paperwork approved before the work can begin, Wolves said today.

A car collided with the publicly-funded £50,000 monument to the England and Wolves giant, which stands outside the Molineux stadium on Waterloo Road, in the early hours of Sunday(15th).

A 30-year-old man has been bailed on suspicion of dangerous driving and drink-driving in relation to the incident.

Wolves spokesman Paul Berry said the club's facilities and safety manager Steve Sutton was liaising with the club’s contractor and insurers about rectifying the damage as soon as possible.

"Once we have established the extent of the repairs required, and the insurers have approved the necessary work, we will start the repairs, but unfortunately that process is unlikely to start for at least a month," he said.

"All the debris and slate has now been removed, so the statue is looking a lot tidier, and we are all looking forward to seeing it returned to its former glory."

The club is keeping the Wright family updated about the restoration work, he said.
