The burglars worked fast to strip the place of 10 or 12 bronze sculptures by the surrealist master, each worth up to £40,000 and each around 20 inches high.

The two suspects are believed to have sped off in a dark Audi and the police arrived after they had left. Officers had been alerted by a private security firm.
