A three-metre inflatable poo belonging to a local council and worth the equivalent of NZ$6,100 (3,000 GBP) has been stolen.

The huge inflata-poo was part of a campaign by the council to try and combat the problem of dog droppings in the municipality of Torrelodones, in the central Spanish province of Madrid.

The inflatable had been installed in the main square but has since gone missing and is believed to have been stolen.

It was the centrepiece of an online campaign created by the council with the hashtag #NoMasCacas (NoMorePoos).

Whoever uploaded a picture with the poo would be given a T-shirt and a booklet.

But now the campaign faces being axed.
