Car cannibalism

A new crime wave has struck Birmingham, in the English midlands. It’s been dubbed ‘car cannibalism’ and involves thieves swooping on overnight parked cars and stripping them for as many parts as can be carried.

The latest to be nobbled was a Ford Fiesta parked outside a pub. The thieves wore masks and were not put off by two CCTV cameras; they dismantled the bonnet as well as removing the bumper, mirrors, radiators and number plate. They also cut the fuel pipes.

“I’d like to rip their heads off” said the owner.
