Attention: Please be aware of security at your museum or heritage site

Lincolnshire Heritage Forum has been made aware of a person posing as a heritage advisor and visiting small, independent museums offering advice and support. Please see below a message from the National Museum Security Group.

“From: The National Museum Security Group

We have received intelligence suggesting that a man using the name “Henry van Norton” is purporting to be an “investigator” for the Rijksmuseum. He is approaching smaller museums and trying to trick them into removing their art from the frames for investigation.
The Rijksmuseum have confirmed that this man is not associated with them and would like all museums and galleries warned about the risk.”
