image for Martin Creed's Turner Prize Empty Room Stolen By Daredevil Thieves
Wall from empty room, please phone Tate Modern if spotted.

In a daring raid on the Tate Modern gallery in London, a £2million masterpiece by conceptual artist Martin Creed was stolen in the early hours of this morning. The masterpiece, an empty room with lights going on and off repeatedly, won the Turner Prize in 2001.

Thieves carefully cut the room out of the building and put it on a waiting low loader which then sped off. Works by Tracey Emin and Damien Hurst were passed over, by the thieves probably because they would be harder to fence (sell on).

"The empty room could be hidden almost anywhere or even taken to America in a container. It is exactly the same as any other empty room. On the black market Creed's empty room could easily make £2million to £3million with a door and light timer switch included" said an empty room critic.

Make Auntie Jean's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
