'We were so sickened by witch deaths, we've erected a memorial'
A SCOTTISH couple has erected a memorial to 22 "witches" killed when their hometown was convulsed by witch-hunting hysteria.

Mark and Marie Cashley were shocked to learn of how the often widowed or impoverished women were targeted, tormented and killed in the quiet, Angus market town of Forfar as recently as the 17th century.

They were even more astounded to learn that no memorial existed to those innocent women killed during some of the last witch-hunts in Scotland.

But now, the pair, who are both chiropractors, are to pay for a permanent memorial to the witches with their own money.
