The portrait of the late television presenter Paula Yates, wife of rock star Bob Geldof, was stolen from the living room of the property on October 26.

The 5ft x 4ft (1.52m x 1.22m) acrylic by Northumbrian-born artist Stella Vine is estimated to be worth several thousands of pounds.

Detective Constable Andy Lawrence of the Hastings and Rother priority crime team, said: "We'd like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in or around the High Street, or who may know what has become of the painting."

Anyone with information is asked to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting serial 1346 of 26/10.
