Pre­tend gun bet­ting shop raider gets 12 months

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By RACHEL SPENCER

A BUNGLING armed rob­ber who tried to raid a book­ies us­ing just his FINGER has been jailed.

Bet­ting shop worker Mark Thomas froze when he felt a hard ob­ject pressed to the side of his head as he counted up the day’s tak­ings.

And un­aware it was ac­tu­ally raider Ron­ald Pat­ter­son’s fore­fin­ger, Mr Thomas re­acted.

In­stead of hand­ing over the £13k cash, Mr Thomas re­fused and forced the 47-year-old thief to the floor.

There was a strug­gle, dur­ing which Pat­ter­son was pushed and fell over a chair.

Pat­ter­son ran off with­out any tak­ings but handed him­self in at a nearby po­lice sta­tion an hour later.

The Old Bai­ley heard the Coral shop in Da­gen­ham Heath­way, Es­sex, was wind­ing up for the day on Aug 20 when job­less Pat­ter­son came in.

Pat­ter­son, a former car­pen­ter – who has a string of con­vic­tions for bur­glary, dat­ing back to the 1980s – re­cently lost his job af­ter the build­ing firm he worked for folded.

Pat­ter­son, of no fixed ad­dress, ad­mit­ted at­tempted rob­bery and was jailed for 12 months. IT might be cold out­side but look on the bright side fel­las – chances are you’ll be see­ing lots of ladies nip­ping out, just like these beau­ties!

Emily Maitlis showed she had plenty of front on News­night, send­ing view­ing fig­ures soar­ing with this sen­sa­tional sight of her perky pair.

It seems to be the lat­est trend for celebs to go out in flimsy bras – or none at all – to show off their stiff rasp­berry rip­ples!

Friends star Jen­nifer Anis­ton loves show­ing off her nips so much she even tried out a vi­brat­ing nip­ple pad on the Ellen De­generes Show.

And our snap of the 42-year-old stunna in a skin-tight top shows her pup­pies noses in all their glory.

Cor­rie favourite He­len Flana­gan pulls in record view­ers by flash­ing her fan­tas­tic cleav­age and starter but­tons on the Manch­ester-based soap.

He­len, 21, who has quit the cob­bles to be­come a bra model, said: “Guys al­ways talk to my chest, but I find it quite en­dear­ing.” Lu­cious Amanda Knox, 24, won a cult fol­low­ing for her pert peaks when she went to court for an ap­peal against her con­vic­tion for the mur­der of Mered­ith Kercher, which she won.

Pop babes Mi­ley Cyrus, 19, and S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens, 33, have both been caught nip­ping out of skimpy vest tops.

Supermodel Kate Moss is queen of the peanut smug­glers. The 37-year-old is rarely seen with­out her nips on show.

And the trend for one shoul­der dresses also brought us this treat from bra-less Me­gan Fox, 25.

TV babes Jen­nifer El­li­son and Ni­cola Mc­clean, both 28, love flaunt­ing their teats. Curvy Ni­cola al­most burst of out her bikini in the Aussie out­back when ap­pear­ing on I’m a Celebrity…
