The painting shows two horses called Zebedee and Beau. PC Julian Lane, who is investigating, said: “The artist who painted the picture is understandably devastated as a lot of time and effort went into creating it.

“Have you seen the painting? Do you think you have been offered it for sale?

“The painting is distinctive and features the artist’s signature so I am hopeful that we can find it and return it to the church.”
