Three men are being sought by police in west London after a unique stuffed Arctic wolf worth £32,000 was stolen from a Chelsea flat.

The burglary happened in the early hours of August 3 after the female victim and a friend had been out in Soho.

Three men who the women had met earlier in the night came home with them at about 4am.

The men left at about 5am and it was discovered later in the morning that the stuffed Arctic wolf was missing.

Bought six years ago from a taxidermy shop, the wolf is about 6ft long and 3ft high with an open snarling mouth and yellow glass eyes.

It has white fur with black speckles on its back, shoulders and ears.
