Thieves snatch thou­sands from su­per­car

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

IT’S the Europa League fi­nal tonight – and mil­lions of footy fans will be tun­ing in to see whether Liver­pool can do one over Span­ish club Sevilla. Thou­sands of fans have al­ready flocked to the Swiss city of Basel to see if the Reds can ce­ment them­selves fur­ther in Euro­pean his­tory. But the tiny Swiss sta­dium can only hold 36,000 fans, so the two clubs only got 10,000 tick­ets each. That means loads of Liver­pool fans – in­clud­ing our four lovely Liver birds here – are hav­ing to do with­out. But fear not – to cheer up the sup­port­ers who have to watch the big game on TV our girls have whipped out their boobs. It’s their spe­cial treat to in­spire the Liver­pool boys to glory as they chase their first tro­phy un­der new boss Jur­gen Klopp – and qual­i­fi­ca­tion for next sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League if they win. There’s a lot at stake – so let’s hope there’s no boobs from Liver­pool on the field tonight! CHEST DO IT! Klopp and his play­ers want a tro­phy A BAG con­tain­ing tens of thou­sands of pounds was stolen from a McLaren su­per­car af­ter by-standers took selfies near the ve­hi­cle.

West Mid­lands Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to the “un­usual” rob­bery, in which win­nings from a bet were snatched dur­ing a strug­gle in Birm­ing­ham city cen­tre.

The vic­tim, a 52-year-old man, was sit­ting in the dis­tinc­tive orange McLaren (above) and had left the cash on the pas­sen­ger seat.

The West Mid­lands force said in a state­ment: “At around 3.30pm two men forced open the car door.

“There was a strug­gle and they man­aged to wrench the bag of cash from the man’s grip.

“Prior to the rob­bery, a group of young men took selfies next to the car. They may have up­loaded these to so­cial me­dia sites such as Snapchat, Twit­ter and Face­book.

“We be­lieve they wit­nessed the rob­bery and may have even pock­eted some of the stolen cash.” WHEN prop­erly sealed in a glass con­tainer honey will not rot, and stay ed­i­ble for thou­sands of years
