Police in Herefordshire are appealing for information from the public as they investigate a theft from a church in the county.
The incident occurred at Abbeydore Church sometime between 7am on Sunday 26 August and 12.45pm on Tuesday 28 August.
Sometime during the time period in question it appears that thieves entered the church – which is left open for visitors during the day – and stole a stone burial plaque that was on the wall inside, held in place by metal brackets.
The stolen burial plaque commemorates Bishop of Hereford John De Breton and is extremely unusual. The value of the plaque is not known but due to its age it is essentially irreplaceable.
