Mummified Hand Stolen from Salisbury Pub

Visitors to the Haunch of Venison in Salisbury, England will no longer be greeted by an 18th century, mummifed hand, which was stolen recently from the pub. A popular attraction for visitors of Salisbury's Haunch of Venison was an 18th century, mummified hand clutching playing cards. The hand, discovered in 1911, was thought to have belonged to a gambler who cheated once too often. The Haunch of Venison was built in 1320 and has operated as a pub from that time.

A police spokesman said: "This is a local tourist attraction and needs to be returned to its rightful home."

Anyone with information should contact the Wiltshire Police.
