Hepworth Stolen

This sculpture by Barbara Hepworth - Two Forms (Divided Circle) - is the latest work of public art to fall victim to metal thieves. It had stood in Dulwich Park in south London since 1970. Stolen for the scrap value of its bronze, it is insured for £500,000. Southwark Council has offered a £1,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the thieves (title link). It's high time Government toughened up the law against criminal scrap metal merchants.
