Dorset Echo: Thieves leave vital DNA clue at scene of crime of the century
Police lab technicians are working - AS WE SPEAK - on a strain of Ebola that will only attack the DNA of the thieves. Then, they will release it into the air above Weymouth and wait for justice to be served.
Alternatively, they will simply shoot on sight anyone seen with a Christmas tree. It's the only way to make sure.

I was hit up the arse by a firework last month, and did I run to the local paper like this genuine Mrs Angry of Tunbridge Wells? No. I did not. Mainly because of the hideous arse injuries.
