Thieves in North Wales stole half of a pensioner's garden lawn this weekend.
Mair Ingham spoke to the Mirror of her disbelief that thieves "had the cheek" to make off with 90 sqm of her artificial lawn.
"I was very proud of my lawn, so was upset it was gone, but more than anything shocked," she said. "I've never heard of anyone stealing someone's lawn before."
She added: "I won't fret; what's done is done. It's no good getting upset, and compared to all the other bad things going on in the world, this is just a drop in the ocean."
