A BAG containing numerous, irreplaceable, Victorian magic props has been stolen in Buxton.
The leather Animal satchel, which also contained several valuable coins and lecture notes, was stolen on Sunday evening.
A man due to give a lecture to members of a local magic group booked into the Buckingham Hotel at about 6pm.
When he was unpacking he noticed his bag was not there. It is believed the bag could have been taken from the car park or hotel lobby.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Buxton Police Station on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
