Humberside Police have launched an appeal for information about a robbery in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.

Sounds fairly normal, doesn't it? But the items stolen were a silver ladle and a silver gravy spoon.

It was reported a side window was smashed in order to reach the silverware and witnesses spotted a modified small dark car shortly before the crime.

Clearly then, those in Yorkshire are proud of their silverware, so we thought we'd take a look at some other strange thefts.
