Medieval weapons including swords and axes were stolen during a burglary at Mountfitchet Castle in Stansted.
Despite a high security surveillance system, a gang of thieves broke into the Castle on Saturday before managing to get into the armoury in the Grand Hall and stealing a number of dangerous medieval weapons including double-handed razor sharp swords, daggers, axes, helmets and chainmail, a total value of nearly £6,000.
Footage of the burglars us being investigated by the police and each item is marked with DNA advanced forensic protection indelible ink, so the items are all completely traceable.
A substantial reward is being offered for any information which leads to the return of the items or an arrest.
