A mannequin which would have once donned the clothes on sale at Nottingham's Debenhams store has now been seen propped up on one of the building's windowsills. Despite the store having been closed since May 2021, someone appears to have been making mischief as the silver statue was seen on the store's frontage on Monday (April 29).

It is not clear who put the mannequin there, but the sighting comes days after an urban explorer went inside the Debenhams building. Nottinghamshire Live asked 'Urbex No Limits' whether they were responsible for the mannequin manoeuvring, but had not received a reply by the time of publication.

Talks on the site's future have been underway since the end of 2022, but those behind the building say it could still be months before any plans are lodged. Longmead Capital, the company which has been in talks with Nottingham City Council over the building's future, previously said it was being kept safe and secure.

Debenham's mannequins were previously spotted by punters taking to the Wheel of Nottingham in March 2019, when a room full of the gold and white statues could be seen from the top of the wheel.
