Thieves steal gardener’s entire shed – but leave behind collection of tools


A Gloucestershire gardener has been left scratching his head after thieves stole an entire shed from his allotment – but left behind all his tools. Nick Thomas, 51, from Bishop’s Cleeve, Gloustershire, said he ‘couldn’t believe it’ when police called him to tell him he’d been the victim of the burglars, who broke into Nortenham allotments near his house. However, expecting to be told his gardening forks, spades and other paraphernalia had been snatched, he was dumbfounded when officers explained all of that was safe – but the wooden shed itself had been nicked.
