It may be a slow news day, but Brighton must be a benign place nevertheless.

This reminds me of the guy on the bike who drove by and snatched the bag of poo from the old lady's hand. Inept crime seems to be a Brighton signature. Or perhaps there just one really dumb criminal constantly making headlines.
