British police are hunting for thieves who stole a 200-year-old cannon from outside a military barracks in southern England.

They said at least two people would have been needed to hoist the 150 lb (68 kg) cannon from outside St George's Barracks in Gosport on the south coast.

"These artefacts are loaned to various locations in Gosport to show the pride that people have in the history of our town," said Josephine Lawler, curator of the museum which owned the cannon.

"However, if this is what happens to them, there will soon be no more left to display."
