Thieves are using cable ties on lampposts to steal dogs!
More an example of stupid hunger for outrage than actual provincial craziness.

Variation on the "civil engineering graffiti on the pavement is a sign that Pedobear is operating in your area" moral panic.  I'm sure people make these things up for the lols.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Canvey Island and Swindon. Separated by distance.

Mayor Marvin mugs boy for bike in Bristol playground! SHOCK!

The bloke on a kid's bike is Bristol's mayor, Marvin Rees (endangering his mayoral brain by stunt cycling without a helmet! shockhorror!) and presumably the only kid on foot is shouting in anger "Hey mister, bring my bike back!"

Storrington's slabs stolen!

Partner's brother's in-laws live there. Hope they don't fall/get muddy.

I have asked the Paving Slab Fairy if she ran short of slabs but she lives in France now...
