Local News Story of the Day

From the Cambridge News:
Theft victim who caught up with crook 'concerned about youth fitness' 
A long-distance runner has donated cash to promote youth fitness after catching a thief who snatched his laptop. 
Peter Stevens was in his car outside his home in Beche Road, Abbey, Cambridge, when the hooded thief opened the rear door and grabbed the computer. 
The 34-year-old runner and IT expert chased him and was surprised when he caught up with the thief after just 225 metres. 
Realising the game was up, the puffed-out criminal dropped the laptop, allowing Mr Stevens to pick it up. 
Mr Stevens said: “I was appalled by how unfit this guy was. I thought it would take a lot longer to catch up with him."
