Panels "hacked" from Devon church

Sometime in the week of August 2-9, 2013, vandals "hacked out" two 15th century, decorative oak panels, bearing the images of saints from Holy Trinity Church in Torbryan, England. The panels were part of a screen and "one of the best examples of their kind left in Britain." (video)

The stolen panels bear the images of St Victor of Marseilles and St Margaret, and they may be destined to be sold outside of Britain. "The value of these panels is in the building, they belong there. They are essentially priceless," said Crispin Truman, chief executive of the conservation charity.

No suspects have been found.
