There's an increasingly alarming trend back in England, for young idiots to steal valuable metals.
They steal track from the railways, cast iron inspection covers from holes in the roads, bronze plaques from war memorials (unbelievable), lead from church roofs, and copper cables from overhead electricity pylons. Their swag ending up at dodgy scrap metal yards.
One would have thought that telling criminals just once, that this was both illegal and dangerous, would have been enough. But no, they will continue, and accidents happen.
The two above (yes, if you look closely you'll see two) failed to heed the well-publicised advice from the electricity people, that to shin-up a pylon with a pair of bolt-cutters could prove fatal, and sadly they can be seen to have reaped the benefits of their illegal stupidity.
And the moral to this tale? Don't test the circuit by putting your fingers into the socket!
Why is it that I feel very little sympathy for these two!
