A PRANKSTER managed to place a cheeseburger in the hands of the Edward Elgar statue in Cathedral square.

Worcestershire’s favourite son has been pictured with the burger in his hands this afternoon, as attendees of the Worcester Vegan Market walk through the city centre.

The legendary composer, famous for composistions such as Pomp and Circumstance and the Enigma Variations, was overlooking the vendors selling a wide variety of vegan items.

The cheeseburger was later replaced with a cup from Shakeaway.
