Form an orderly queue, ladies!
Two thieves who stole a 'priceless' artwork by the sculptor Henry Moore and sold it at a scrapyard for £46 have each been jailed for a year.
Liam Hughes, 22, and 19-year-old Jason Parker stole the Working Model for Sundial - believed to be worth around half a million pounds - from the grounds of the Henry Moore Foundation in Hertfordshire.Now, I'm no Henry Moore fan, and I can't help but feel its scrap value isn't far off its actual worth to me.
Henry Moore is widely regarded as one of the most important British artists of the 20th Century, and his creations have fetched millions at auction.
Neither of the men had any idea of the true value of what they had taken, St Albans Crown Court heard.Yes, well, for once, I'm inclined to actually believe the defence!
