A reward of up to 1,500 is being offered by a council for information leading to the recovery of a stone statue stolen from a Kent park.

The Dancing Girl, by Victorian sculptor William Theed, had stood in Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells since it was donated by Alderman RD Burslem in 1951.

The statue, described as "precious and historically significant", was stolen from the park on Sunday night.

Anyone who may have information about the theft should contact police.

Councillor James Scholes said: "We are anxious to see the statue safely returned."
