A painting, stolen by the Nazis during World War II, has been returned to Poland.

Saint Philip Baptizing a Servant of Queen Kandaki, by 18th Century German artist Johann Conrad Seekatz, was taken from the National Museum in Warsaw.

Nearly 70 years later it was spotted in an art gallery in London, leading to an American led investigation.

The result was the painting being handed back to Polish authorities at a ceremony in New York.
