A racehorse owner is putting up a £15,000 reward for the return of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, police said today.

The solid gold trophy was one of several cups taken from the home of multimillionaire Raymond Mould in Wormington, Gloucestershire.

He is offering the reward for anyone who can secure the return of all items taken during the burglary at about 6.50am on Wednesday.

A Gloucestershire police spokesman said: "Mr Mould is putting up a personal amount of money, £15,000, for information that leads to a successful arrest and the recovery of the items."
