A life-size fibreglass cow highlighting climate change in the lead-up to United Nations talks has been stolen from outside Cornwall's cathedral.

The King Harry Ferry company's white sculpture was raising awareness of the Footsteps to Copenhagen procession due to be held in Truro next week.

Police said that the cow was taken sometime between 10 and 16 October.

It was based on the Jack's Cows arts project which was run over the summer by the city's Hall For Cornwall.

The cow had been placed outside the cathedral by local boat-builder Rory MacPhee who had rowed up the river with the cow from the King Harry offices in Feock.

It was promoting the march due to take place in Truro on 27 October.

The ferry company's Toby Budd said: "It's a shame that a cow on an important mission should be stolen like this.

"We all feel really shocked as she has become a part of the King Harry team and hope that she will be returned to us very soon."
