An 18ct gold toilet, worth an estimated one million pounds has been stolen from Blenheim Palace; the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.
The toilet, titled “America”, and created by by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, was appearing in an art exhibition. What is worse is it was plumbed in, and the theft has caused “significant water damage”.
An expensive way to “spend a penny”. The police say they have nothing to go on.
