A painting of Northampton's first Asian mayor has been stolen from the town's Guildhall.

Jaswant Bains served as mayor in the 90s before his death in 2003.

His painting is usually kept hung on a wall over a hook, but it's thought that it was taken sometime between 3.30pm and 6.45pm on Friday, August 3.

Anyone with information or knowledge of the whereabouts of the painting can contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
