Thieves steal swords, axes and other medieval weapons from Mountfitchet Castle

Braintree and Witham Times: Thieves steal swords, axes and other medieval weapons from Mountfitchet Castle Thieves steal swords, axes and other medieval weapons from Mountfitchet Castle

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.

"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." Write English much? Nah -- didn't think so.

A "substantial reward" -- how can it be "substantial" when the stolen items are only worth about six grand! :-/

What a load of ol' tut.
