Thousands of Heinz baked beans tins stolen

More than 6,000 tins of beans have been stolen from a parked-up lorry.

Thieves cut a large hole in the curtain-sided lorry and took nearly two pallets of the tins of Heinz baked beans with sausages.

The lorry had been parked in a lay-by on the A441, at Cookhill, near Redditch, Worcestershire, when the raiders struck.

The driver had been asleep in the cab when the tins were taken during Monday night.

"Police are appealing for information, especially about anyone trying to sell large quantities of Heinz baked beans in suspicious circumstances," a force spokesman said.
