THIEVES stole a four-tier stone water fountain from the grounds of a former manor house in Shenley last week.

Police are now appealing for information about the theft from Shenley Hall in Rectory Lane, which took place at around 11pm on Thursday June 25.

The culprits drove onto a grassed area in front of the property, which is now occupied by Road Tech Computer Systems, and removed the four-tier fountain before placing it into a van and making off.

Due to the size and weight of the fountain, which had four bowls of decreasing sizes, there would have been at least two culprits removing it.

Their getaway van is thought to be white.

Investigating officer PC Paul Francis, said: "If anyone witnessed suspicious activity in the area around the stated time or if you have any information, I would ask that you get in contact as soon as possible.
