Manchester Museum time-lapse 'shows Egyptian statue move'

Time-lapse footage shows an Egyptian statue moving in its glass display cabinet, according to a Manchester Museum.

The museum says it installed a stop-motion camera after reports the carving had started changing position, despite apparently not being moved by human hands for 80 years.

The 10 inch stone statue dates back to 1800 BC.
