Crimewatch Slot For Oddies Snatch

| No Comments News - UK - Bless their little cotton socks

The case of the stolen socks, as reported in The Scotsman (below) and elsewhere, was also featured on the BBC's Crimewatch programme last night.

THIEVES have hot-footed it with 50,000 odd socks, police said yesterday. A Suffolk Police spokesman said that 25,000 pairs of non-matching socks in 50 boxes, including many designed as a policeman and a robber, were taken from an Ipswich lorry park during a raid. The socks had been destined for Woolworth stores throughout the country. They were due to be part of a promotion this Christmas for the children's book series, The Oddies, which is based on the question: "Where do all the missing odd socks go?"
