Power Play Is A Shocking Discovery
Police in central England are hunting for a badly scorched would-be copper power cable thief after finding a hacksaw embedded in an 11,000 volt power cable. The thief, who also left a lit blowtorch at the scene, is expected to be “badly charred, spiky haired and not exactly the brightest bulb in the socket”. Nearly 800 customers in the village of Creswell were cut off when the wannabe copper thief sawed into their power supply, but power was restored in a few hours.
