A fresh appeal for information has been made three years after the theft of a Henry Moore sculpture worth £3m in the south of Scotland.

The 7ft tall Standing Figure was taken from Glenkiln in October 2013.

Nobody has ever been arrested for the crime despite an appeal on Crimewatch and a £50,000 reward offered for the recovery of the bronze sculpture.

Det Insp Scott Young made a renewed plea to the public to come forward with information about the incident.

"Despite an extensive investigation the sculpture has not been recovered and those responsible for the theft have not been apprehended," he said.

"The inquiry remains open and we will continue to act upon any information received in the future.

"I would like to reassure our communities that rural crime is a priority for Police Scotland and that we continue to work with partners across Scotland in an effort to prevent and detect such crime."
