Search for stolen bronze dolphins

Bronze dolphins in Maypole Gardens: Pic Penwith District Council
The water feature statue is worth between 3,000 and 8,000

A Bronze statue believed to be worth several thousand pounds has been stolen from a municipal park.

Police said the statue, which depicts two entwined dolphins, was removed from Maypole Gardens in Marazion, Cornwall.

The water feature had been secured with bolts, and officers said it would have been heavy enough to have taken two people to lift it.

The statue is believed to have been stolen in the early hours of Saturday and police have appealed for witnesses.
