The management also announced closure of Blenheim Palace to allow for thorough investigations.

“It’s therefore a great shame an item so precious has been taken, but we still have so many fascinating treasures in the Palace and the remaining items of the exhibition to share. Please note, the palace will now be shut until 2 pm,” the statement went on.

Investigations continue tomorrow September 15.
