Tickets to the V-festival have been stolen in a bizarre series of thefts in Chelmsford.
Police have issued a warning after four instances of people having tickets stolen after arranging to sell them to a man on auction websites.
Upon meeting him in the Melbourne area of the town to hand over the tickets, they were confronted by a man on crutches, sporting bandages and plasters on his head. As he took the tickets for inspection and prior to purchasing them, he ran off with them.
This is a rather bizarre way of committing crime, but it has already led to four different sets of people being duped into handing over the tickets. We are reminding people of the need to be wary of personal security and that of items they are holding or indeed intending to sell.
