Cemetery Flowers

By MichaelBHanney  
For a change, a chap in a red box.

The 'Cemetery Flowers Thief' in question was a fellow who took flowers from graves and sold them outside night-clubs. On one occasion, apparently, police followed his wet footsteps from a graveside and found him waiting for a bus with a black bin bag full of second-hand roses. And he went to jail.

Thanks for getting this far.

Local press, what would life be like without it? One of our local rag's Stories of the Year was the lady who accidentally put a new blouse in a charity bag...

Quote:lady who accidentally put a new blouse in a charity bag...

Yep, that sets quite a standard. Perhaps we could play local paper headline poker; I'll see your charity lady and raise you a:

'Woodseats man dies of natural causes'

Thanks for looking!

Not just a red box, but a red box on wheels! Great shot and nice to see a bit of sunshine.

Story of the year from Guernsey: Man uses a fish he stole from the aquarium to win an angling competition. He was convicted after someone recognised the fish.

I think its a prototype Reliant Robin

I do enjoy a bit of local news
