Beware of Christmas turkeys going cheap…

If you’re offered a cheap turkey in the next few days, beware: it could spoil your whole Christmas.

Lincolnshire Police are warning that it could be stolen – and it might even give you food poisoning.

Over £1,000 worth of turkeys and other joints of meat were stolen in a night-time raid on the weekend at the Butchers in Moulton High Street.

Police are investigating whether an abandoned wheelbarrow found on the High Street was used by the robbers to shift their booty.

Police also warn of health risks involved in eating the stolen meat as it would probably need a commercial sized fridge to keep it properly refrigerated.

Anyone with information about the incident or know who is selling cheap turkeys or joints of meat is asked to contact Pc Coleman on 01522 558798, entering number 1197 when prompted.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

The Tories created the most corrupt political generation in modern British history.

Not only did they line their pockets by breaking the law, it was at a time when Britain was suffering. While Archer, AItken and Hamilton were getting stinking rich, 3 Million people were unemployed, interest rates soared and inflation hit 12%. Crime doubled and 1200 people had their homes reposessed every week.

No one will ever listen to The Tories when they talk about sleaze.

welcome.

The Tories also gave us the two worst recessions in post-war history...

People today take economic stability for granted - that's what Governments are supposed to deliver...the danger at the next election is that many voting for the first time will be too young to remember how they ruined so many lives...
