Pensioners Get Ugly

This week, a group of pensioners have decided to take justice into their own hands by getting their own back on a recurring confidence trickster.

A group of pensioners talked their way into a well known con-man's flat in Eldene this lunchtime and one of them snatched £254 from a drawer while the con-man, who refuses to be named, was distracted when the rest of the group said they were collecting bric-a-brac for charity.

'' Clearly we hope this is an isolated incident, but urge any other pensioners to keep their tempers under control''. That comment from Martin Smyth, spokesman for Wiltshire Constabulary.

Warnings were made by the council that they would instruct police to 'shoot to kill' if groups of pensioners were seen roaming the streets after dusk tonight.
