A £2,000 golden ornamental swing used in Asian wedding celebrations has been stolen from the back of a Mercedes van in Lancashire.

Police said it was taken along with an ornamental drum, heavy duty fairy lights, candles, brightly coloured fabric and a grey and yellow tool box.

The van was robbed when it was left parked at the side of Blackpool Road in Ribbleton last Thursday or Friday.

Police, who have just released details, said the items are very large.

Pc Paul Brookes said: "It is likely the offenders could only carry it a short distance so it is possible a vehicle was used."
