Reward offered over theft of art

Painting by Peter Snell
Artworks, many created by local artists, were stolen

A £1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of thieves who stole art works from a Wiltshire gallery.

The break-in at the National Trust property on the Stourhead estate happened earlier this month.

Tens of thousands of pounds worth of paintings, ceramics and sculptures, much of which was created by local artists, was taken.

Police said damage was caused during the entry and search of the building.
