A SUBSTANTIAL reward is being offered for the safe return of a black Doc Martens shoebox containing irreplaceable art work.

Cassie Rendle, who is in her final year of a BA Craft Design course at Hereford College of Art, remembers having had the box in Aldi's car park when she and a friend were loading the car, but has been unable to find it.

The box contained several very distinctive items of coursework, including a monkey puppet (pictured above), five hand-made metal crowns and two small boxes, all work toward's Cassie's final year show.

Anyone with any information should call 01497 820298.
