Anglo-Saxon stone sculpture stolen from church
Thieves have stolen unique stone artefact, dating back 1,200 years, from a church in Hovingham, near Malton, North Yorkshire.
Some time between 23 May and 6 June 2015, offenders entered All Saints Church in Hovingham and stole a carved stone which was on display in the recess of a window.
The statue, originally part of a stone cross, dates from the late eighth or early ninth century, and is particularly notable for its ornate and accomplished carving.
It is very heavy and will have required a vehicle to remove it.
