Whether you'd like to admit it or not, the amount of effort that it takes to steal a toilet is pretty impressive.

The fact that said toilet is made of solid gold and is worth around £1 million, of course, explains why you'd want to steal it. As you can probably guess, the toilet is part of an art exhibition in England - at the birthplace of Winston Churchill, no less - and was reported stolen earlier this morning.

The piece, titled 'America', was created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and was created for the Guggenheim in 2016. Subsequently, the piece has gone on tour and is a fully functional toilet, completely rigged up for use. Not only that, the piece was offered to Donald Trump as a satirical jibe, but the US President didn't take up the offer - despite the fact that you know right well he'd just love it.

Just to make it even more interesting, visitors can actually use the toilet and even take a dump if so needed, provided they were done within three minutes. No bringing a book with you, then.

Anyway, the investigation involving the theft has so far seen a 66-year old man arrested, with Thames Valley Police appealing for witnesses. Speaking to media, DI Jess Milne explained that they currently believe "a group of offenders used at least two vehicles during the offence," and that the heist caused "significant damage and flooding" - because the toilet was plumbed into the house.

As of now, the toilet has not yet been recovered.
