A van containing "irreplaceable" costumes for a theatre's Christmas show has been stolen from a pub car park.
Hundreds of handmade garments, which were to be used for Gypsy at Manchester's Royal Exchange, were taken from outside the Lancashire Fold in Middleton between 00:30 and 07:00 BST.

Head of wardrobe Nicola Meredith said the vintage items were "unique" and had "taken years to collect".

Anyone with information about the theft should get in touch, police have said.



A spokeswoman for the Royal Exchange said the show will still open on 30 November as planned.
