Two antique lead statues worth about £15,000 have been stolen from a Berkshire home.

Burglars got into the garden of the house in Mortimer Lane, Mortimer, before stealing the 5ft-high (1.5m) figures.

One is of a woman carrying a basket, which is worth about £12,000, while the other is of a mermaid, worth £3,000.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the thefts, which happened between Monday night and Tuesday morning.
