Cheeky Thieves Are Caught On Camera Stealing Grass From A Front Lawn In Lancashire

"I read the news today, oh boy/Some people stole a lawn in Lancashire..."

Yes, just check out this bizarre scene that recently took place in Skelmersdale, West Lancashire.

Two women took it upon themselves to steal the turf from someone's front lawn at 5am (why they didn't do it under the cover of darkness, we don't know) - and the whole thing was caught on CCTV by a neighbour.

"I couldn't stop laughing, I was annoyed at the same time though," the neighbour in question, Bobby Stacey, told the Liverpool Echo. The couple took about 40 minutes to finish the job and, says Stacey, "even took a cigarette break."

Lancashire Police have confirmed that they're investigating the incident and have appeal to anyone with information to come forward.

We've heard of people really needing to get their hands on some grass - but this is ridiculous.
