In the early hours of Tuesday Morning Wookey Hole Caves got a phone call on their emergency 24 hour line from the kidnappers telling them their stolen Dalek has become to hot to handle and had been dumped at Glastonbury Torr.

The caves sent a member of their staff up to the torr to make sure it doesn't get stolen again, while they work out how to get their heavy Dalek back down the torr. How did they get the Dalek up to the Torr - more importantly how are the crew from Wookey Hole Caves going to get this heavy mechanised monster back down the hill?

A local person came with the idea of asking cave rescue to help, and the rescue organisation agreed. Between 12pm & 1pm the rescue team will be bringing the dalek down from the torr on a rescue stretcher. Wookey Hole Caves stated they feel the 500 reward offered for the return of the Dalek should be paid to the cave rescue team.

Originally a ransom note along with a part of the missing Dalek was left after the Dr Who creature was stolen overnight between June 6th and 7th 2005 from the Wookey Hole Caves site.
