'Have you seen missing lion?' Theft of carving puzzles pub staff

Puzzled staff at a pub near Burnham-On-Sea have this week issued an appeal for the return of this wood carving of a lion, which was stolen at the weekend.

The ornate seven inch wide carving was removed from a fireplace in the bar of the Watchfield Inn.

Licensee Jane Berryman told "It's puzzled us why someone would want to remove an item like this."

"It has been there for many years and has left a big gap in what is a beautiful old fireplace."

"We are very keen to get it returned and would be interested in hearing from anyone who knows its whereabouts."
