Not a loopy idea at all

The crime rate in Budleigh Salterton is fairly low, but you can’t be too careful and local police are helping the public to protect their property against pickpockets with a novel but simple scheme.

Yesterday PCSO Malcolm Maguire was visiting the town’s charity shops to distribute blue nylon lanyards which can be looped through bag handles and clipped to wallets and purses to keep them safe.

Here at Oxfam, where the picture was taken, volunteer staff reported that the lanyards – which are free – were being taken at a brisk rate by the public.
