Attention all crime solvers, private detectives and art collectors, Banksy's poignant cultural sculpture The Drinker has been stolen and there's a handsome reward on offer!
At a time when the government are getting hot and bothered about binge drinking and alcohol companies supplying health information on their labels, Banksy's sculpture The Drinker is perhaps more relevant now than ever before.
A sombre, reflective boozehound complete with a cone on his head, The Drinker is yet another one of Banksy's iconic, political works of art and has helped establish the West Country paint bandit as one of the UK's finest subversive artists.
The Drinker weighs one tonne and is over nine foot tall. It went up for sale in late April and five figure sums had been offered for it. The statue was stolen from the owner's house last weekend before any sale could go ahead.
Police are currently investigating the theft and have stated that the sticky fingured art lover left the signed plinth and traffic cone behind, greatly depreciating the value. If you know anything about this, please contact the police - a reward has been put on the table.
Did you steal The Drinker? Do you know who stole it? If so, contact the police straight away.
And remember, don't have nightmares.
