Stolen Robin Hood tapes turn up

Jonas Armstrong as Robin Hood

Stolen tapes of the BBC's new Robin Hood series have been found in a happy ending that the folk hero would have been proud of.

The tapes went missing from a studio in Hungary, where the 8m TV series was being filmed.

Programme-makers did not give details of how the tapes were found, but two people were said to have been arrested.

Robin Hood hits the screen in October in the same Saturday night slot that Doctor Who had.

A spokesman for the programme-makers said: "Investigations are not complete and therefore we do not wish to make any further comment."

The 13-part series stars Irish-born actor Jonas Armstrong in the role of Robin, who robbed the rich to feed the poor, according to legend.
