Works in progress by a master wood carver were stolen from Fairlop Waters Country Park.

Sculptor Marshall Lambert said the theft took place overnight on Saturday, March 21 when there was a break-in at the works yard in the park.

As well as some of Marshall's unfinished carvings, a six-wheeled Gator truck and tools were also taken.

Marshall, from Natural Garden Sculptures, has shared pictures of the carvings - one of which is a dog and the other a bench surrounded by carved animals - in the hope someone might be able to identify the culprits. 

This work in progress was also stolen along with a six-wheeled Gator truck and some tools.
