Bow and arrows were stolen from a property close to where the Battle of Hastings occurred and King Harold was shot in the eye – with an arrow.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the burglary which occurred in Potmans Lane, Catsfield, Battle, between 6pm on Friday, January 24, and 5pm Wednesday, January 29.

A Sussex Police statement said: “Two bows and two sets of arrows were the only items stolen.

“The bows are very distinct in appearance, one bow had a red body with white limbs and the other bow had a blue body with white limbs.

“The blue bow is a left-handed one which makes it more unusual.

“There was a set of ten arrows with orange and blue fletchings and a set of ten arrows with red and white fletchings which were also stolen.”

Call Sussex Police on 101.

I don't think this crime is linked to the battle of Hastings, if it is why have police only just released the details?
