Torbryan Screen Theft
A thief has hacked out two priceless oak panels from the 15th century Torbryan Screen in Holy Trinity Church, Torbryan, Devon. The stolen panels show St Victor of Marseilles and St Margaret (right of the photo). A third panel with a picture of a female saint was damaged. The screen is one of the few to survive the Reformation and one of the finest left in Britain (CLICK).
