The 3-Bed Semi That's A Steal

28 November 2008

As the housing market is currently stuck firmer than a rhino in a bath full of treacle, moving up the property ladder is harder than ever at the moment.

So, if you can’t buy a new house, why not try nicking yourself one? That’s what happened in Poole, Dorset earlier in the week, as a pair of brazen thieves had a bash at dismantling a three-bedroom semi brick by brick.

Believing them to be legitimate workmen, neighbours even chipped in with some help as the pair removed the roof and half of the end wall before knocking off for a lunch break.

Two 38-year old men were later arrested. Rumours that they were deranged estate agents who’d gone loco through a combination of boredom and loss of self esteem could not be confirmed.
