Russell Crowe - Russell Crowe Pays For Repairs For Robin Hood Prop

Russell Crowe has paid for repairs to a Robin Hood prop at a Scottish tourist attraction after it was damaged by thieves.

The actor gifted the $90,000 (£60,000) battering ram, which formed part of a set used in his 2010 film, to the Duncarron Medieval Village, a Middle Ages recreation in Scotland, and he was left fuming after vandals stripped eight decorative shields from it during a raid in September (13).

Following an unsuccessful appeal for the safe return of the shields, it has now emerged Crowe has given site managers around $1,200 (£800) to pay for the repairs.

A statement from the Clanranald Trust, the charity which runs the village, reads, "As most of you know our battering ram... had eight of her roof-shields stolen this summer and the police have had no luck finding them or the culprits.

"Today we have had the most wonderful news: Mr Russell Crowe has contacted the company that built her and has bought us eight new shields for her roof!!! Thank you Russell!"
