Two South African hunting trophies have been stolen from an industrial unit in Cornwall.

The shoulder mounted kudu and eland, which are two antelope species, have been valued at about £1,000, said Devon and Cornwall Police.

The pair were brought back to the county following a safari trip by their owner in 2004.

They were stolen from the Helston area of west Cornwall between 21 and 27 December.

A police spokesman said the kudu trophy was extremely large and had spiral horns which measured about 60in (152cm).

He added that the eland horn length was about 30in (76cm).

A laptop, welding equipment and mobile phones were also taken.
