And finally… egged on

A man dubbed “the Easter bunny” has admitted stealing almost 200,000 Creme Eggs.

Joby Pool, 32, is facing jail after pleading guilty to criminal damage and two counts of theft at Shrewsbury Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

He used a stolen tractor to steal the trailer full of chocolate from a storage unit in Telford but was spotted by police and caught while making his getaway.

Prosecutors told the court that it was “clearly an organised criminal matter”, The Guardian reports.

Pool has been remanded in custody pending his sentencing hearing next month.
