Boat thief caught red-handed...

Sharp-eyed police officers on routine patrol in Cowbit on Tuesday decided to stop a four-wheel drive vehicle which was towing a large trailer and yacht.

But as the vehicle made off towards Weston, the boat fell off, flipping the trailer.

The 31-year-old driver from Wisbech was arrested and taken to Spalding Police station on suspicion of stealing the trailer - and the boat, as well as driving while disqualified.

Police later identified the boat and trailer were later as having been stolen from Deeping St Nicholas.

Hope police check the villain's yard to see if there's any sign of my old Ford Capri which was nicked from outside my garage last summer!
