Keptie Kev has donned a WW1 issue helmet and stands pride of place in the centre of the Armistice Day display as Poppy Pete in Morrisons supermarket on Hume Street, Arbroath.

A mysterious statue that was the talk of Arbroath before vanishing is to make a comeback at a fundraiser.

The Mirror Man – known to many as Keptie Kev – rose to fame earlier this year when he mysteriously appeared at Keptie Pond.

A spokesman for the group behind the statue, now known as Poppy Pete, confirmed the sculpture will be in the town’s Morrisons as part of a Poppy Scotland appeal.

Wearing a soldier’s helmet, the 6ft figure has now had hundreds of poppies attached to his shimmering frame.
