Stansted: Men Held Over Sundial Theft

Two men from Stansted have been charged with the theft of a sculpture taken from the former home of British artist Henry Moore.

Hertfordshire Police said Liam Hughes, 22, and 19-year-old Jason Parker had both been charged with stealing the sundial sculpture and a bronze plinth.

The sundial, created by Moore in 1965 as a working model for a larger sculpture, was taken from the grounds of The Henry Moore Foundation in Much Hadham, Herts, overnight between July 10 and 11.

Said to be worth up to £500,000, the distinctive artwork was found at an undisclosed location after a televised appeal for information last Thursday.

Hughes and Parker, both of Coltsfield, Stansted, have been bailed to appear before magistrates in Stevenage on August 3rd.

A third man, aged 22 and also from Stansted, has been released without charge.
