Police in Sweden have launched a manhunt after thieves swiped some of the country's crown jewels from a cathedral and escaped by speedboat.

Two priceless crowns and an orb belonging to a 17th Century king and queen were taken at around midday on Tuesday in Strängnäs, near Stockholm.

Witnesses said they saw two men running from the cathedral, which was open to the public and hosting a lunch fair.

They were seen motoring off into Lake Malaren, and have not been seen since.

1. Everybody's intrigued by a good caper.

That's why they make movies about them. It'll be a shame though, if the thieves melt down the historical artifacts and sell the gems piecemeal.

Then again, screw it.
