The recent snow in parts of the UK provided this little gem of a story from yesterday, which occured near Newcastle Upon Tyne:
Reports were received by police around 1.20am on Wednesday that a shed had been broken into, with two bicycles stolen.
Fresh evidence lay under police noses when they noticed a trail of footprints, captured by the heavy snow, leading to a property only a few hundred yards away.
The footprints paved the way to the hapless thief's door and a 16-year-old was subsequently arrested.
Both bikes were recovered and the teenager is in custody on suspicion of burglary.
