The sculpture of the Celtic god of the sea was created by Game of Thrones sculptor John Darren Sutton and has been overlooking Lough Foyle since 2013.

PSNI officers are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Constable Nelson said: “This statue of Manannan Mac Lir was in the area of Gortmore viewing point and is part of the Myths and Legends sculpture trail.

“Anyone with any information about this theft is asked to contact Limavady Police Station on the non emergency number 101.”
