Ancient Egyptian artefacts, historical swords, daggers, spears and arrows have been stolen from an 18th Century mansion in East Lothian.

Items from a rare historical collection were taken from Biel House in Stenton some time between 16:00 on Tuesday and 09:00 on Wednesday.

They are worth a four-figure sum of money.

Police Scotland have appealed for witnesses.

PC Karen Hamilton said: "These artefacts have been in the museum at Biel House for many years and we are keen to make sure these are returned to where they belong."
