Geneva Breeches Bible stolen from Welsh church

Thieves of a rare 16th century bible must have had a guilty conscience when they left a modern replacement bible in a locked case in St Mary's church in Trefriw, Wales. The Geneva Breeches Bible was produced by Protestants in Switzerland in 1589.

PC Nerys Thomas from North Wales Police said: "The church has only been open four times between October 25th and December 1st (2013) and it's believed that an implement was used to force the lock during one of the days when it was open."

The Geneva Breeches Bible has yet to be recovered.
