An Oxfordshire church is celebrating after the return of Jesus to its nativity scene.
The figurine of the infant Christ was stolen last week from St Mary's Church in Church Green in Witney, with local police appealing for help on social media to track it down.
The appeal received a huge response leading to its return albeit slightly dirtier than before it was taken.
Speaking to the BBC, Rev Canon Toby Wright said: "Baby Jesus is safely back and tucked up - it's great news for Christmas."
The person who took Baby Jesus is still unknown.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
