Naked 'burglar' stuck up chimney
The paucity of good nutritional information including the amount of fat etc. on some food goods in UK shops could have been a factor in the apprehension of a naked burglar who was too fat for the chimney at a Tesco Express store in Wigan.
Had he had access to such information over the months before his unfortunate predicament he may have eaten more healthily and so undertaken his robbery without worry of getting stuck.
He now faces charges and a possible spell at Her Majesty's pleasure.
