Beans stolen

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."

Thieves cut a large hole in the curtain-sided lorry and took nearly two pallets of the tins of Heinz baked beans with sausages.

The lorry had been parked in a lay-by on the A441, at Cookhill, near Redditch, Worcestershire, when the raiders struck.

The driver had been asleep in the cab when the tins were taken during Monday night.

  3. Wrong label picture - these were baked beans with sausages, i.e. in the same tin. And they're delish! One of the things I miss about England. (Is homesick.)
