A 250-year-old sundial made from bronze is believed to have been stolen from St Matthew’s Church in Morley after it was reported missing.

The historic object was designed by renowned clockmaker and scientist John Whitehurst in 1762.

Church warden Sheila Randall said she was alerted to the disappearance of the instrument on Saturday evening by a friend who had visited the churchyard in the afternoon.
