Opportunist thieves have stolen an entire stone path from an historic village church.
The shocking theft was discovered on Tuesday morning at St Ambrose Church in Grindleton in the Ribble Valley by church rector the Rev Mark Williams.
Several large, heavy York stone slabs, worth thousands of pounds, had been carefully removed from the path that leads to the entrance to the church that was built in 1803.

Rev Williams said: "I live across the road from the church but didn't see or hear anything.
