TITANIC NECKLACE STOLEN

A gold plated necklace has been stolen from a Titanic Exhibition in Denmark. The piece that once belonged to a passenger of the ill fated ocean liner was part of a temporary display of artefacts at Copenhagenís Tivoli Park.

According to experts the necklace belonged to first-class US passenger Eleanor Widener, who survived the 1912 sinking.
Tivoli spokesman Torben Planks said, 'The showcase has not been broken into and the alarm didn't go off... It is pretty embarrassing,' he added.

Luis Ferreiro, who runs the exhibition, said the necklace was insured for 14,000 Euros but was so well known he doubted it could be sold on. He added 'It was very important piece. The artefacts tell stories about the people aboard,'

There is a reward of one thousand Euros for its return.
