‘NEWS now that Germans are not all ruthlessly efficient. Police in Bremen are hunting a thief who might just be the country’s most useless burglar of all time.

Having broken into the offices of a timber firm, the villain ripped open the coffee machine looking for cash. There was none to be had – since it only accepted tokens. Our hero then nicked a mobile phone – which only works in the office – and an electronic cordless screwdriver, leaving behind the batteries and charger.

He then drank a can of Coke that forensics later revealed to have been one year past its sell-by date.’
