A CHRISTMAS tree has been stolen from outside an Isle of Wight village shop.

The 6ft tree was taken from outside the delicatessen in Seaview High Street, opposite the Seaview Hotel on Friday evening.

It was one of 15 trees around the village, paid for by Nettlestone and Seaview Community Partnership, designed to help businesses and make the village brighter.

Chairman Reg Barry said they had spent hundreds of pounds on the trees.

"We have done it for about five years now. We’ve replaced the tree because we do not want to give in to these people and we don’t want them to spoil it for everyone else," he said.

Police have confirmed they are investigating the theft.
