Al Capone statue stolen

A life-size statue of Al Capone has been stolen from a garden in Kent, England.

Owner Pauline McCook, who discovered the fibre glass figure was missing from her Isle of Sheppey home on Wednesday, said it was like "part of the family".

The grandmother, who likes to decorate the statue for Christmas, only discovered the theft when she went outside with tinsel to drape over it.

Her family is offering a reward for the return of the statue, which was taken between 1 and 10 December.

Kent Police said it was "an extremely unusual item to steal".
