Two men have been charged with the theft of a sculpture taken from the former home of British artist Henry Moore.

Hertfordshire Police said Liam Hughes, 22, and 19-year-old Jason Parker had both been charged with stealing the sundial sculpture and a bronze plinth.

The sundial, created by Moore in 1965, was taken from the grounds of The Henry Moore Foundation in Much Hadham, Herts, overnight between July 10 and 11.

Hughes and Parker, both of Coltsfield, Stansted, Essex, have been bailed to appear before magistrates in Stevenage on August 3.

A third man, aged 22 and also from Stansted, has been released without charge.
