Thieves in Cookhill, Worcestershire, sliced through the side of a truck and made off with more than 6,000 tins of beans and sausages. The beans were Heinz brand. "Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances."
