Thieves have stolen a bronze statue given to a primary school in honour of murdered pupil Sarah Payne.

The 2ft statue, which was given to Sarah’s Burhill County Primary School in Hersham, Surrey, is believed to have been stolen at around 1am by three people, Surrey Police said.

A van was seen in the area around the school in Pleasant Place at the time.

Sergeant Marc Nettleingham said: ‘We are carrying out a number of inquiries to identify the offenders responsible for this theft, which is particularly reprehensible given that it was presented to the school in memory of Sarah Payne.

‘I am appealing to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time of the offence, or with any other information, to come forward straight away.’

Sarah was eight when she was abducted and killed in 2000 by convicted paedophile Roy Whiting.

Anyone with information should contact Surrey Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
