Detective Inspector Jess Milne said: "The piece of art that has been stolen is a high-value toilet made out of gold that was on display at the palace.

"Due to the toilet being plumbed into the building, this has caused significant damage and flooding.

"We believe a group of offenders used at least two vehicles during the offence.

"The artwork has not been recovered at this time but we are conducting a thorough investigation to find it and bring those responsible to justice."

Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was closed to the public on Saturday morning due to "an incident", but it did not give further details.

The palace is home to the 12th duke of Marlborough and his family, and was also the birthplace of British wartime leader Winston Churchill.

It was The Crapper. We here in Interpol know all about this guy. He once sent us all mislabeled laxatives in the mail.

Gold? Toilet?

I'm not saying Trump is involved, but it's Trump.

---- yeah. Good on them. I'm not for forced wealth redistribution, but I think gold toilets are an exception.
