Thieves have stolen an elephant from a front garden.

The concrete elephant garden ornament, worth £50, was stolen from a front garden of a house in Udimore Road, Rye, overnight between Monday and Tuesday.

Sussex Police say that the ornament is “extremely heavy” and would most likely need two people to lift it.

Any witness or anyone with information is asked to call 101 or email quoting serial 1457 of 27/5.
