The memorial was unveiled last year after a Just Giving page set up to fund the memorial bench raised over £6,000.

On the silver plaque was engraved: "We’ve still got hope so I think we’ll be fine” – a line from one of the band’s msot popular songs 'Oil Slink'.

In a post on the Twitter account Scott's Bench, a campaign group who helped raise funds for the memorial, was posted: "If you’re not aware yet, someone has stolen the plaque from our bench. I’ve been in touch with @GlasgowCC, so hopefully they get back to us soon.

"The consensus seems to be that we don’t want to know who took it, just hope it wasn’t a ‘fan’ #frabbits #maketinychanges #tinychanges."
