    An artist's latest work - a bottle of melted Antarctic ice - may have been stolen and drunk by a thirsty thief. Artist Wayne Hill filled a two-litre clear plastic bottle with melted ice to highlight global warming.

    But the artwork, valued at £42,500, went missing while on display at a literary festival, reports the Scotsman.

    Entitled Weapon of Mass Destruction, it vanished halfway through the Ways with Words festival at Dartington Hall, Devon.

    Mr Hill said: "It looked like an ordinary bottle of water, but it was on a plinth, labelled, described and in the programme of the whole festival.

    "It was very, very clear what it was - a work of art."

    He should just refill it from the tap. No one would know the difference.
