The search for a missing shopping trolley from Dunstable came to a tragic end yesterday when it was found dead in a stream in the nearby village of Harold.
PC Flegg said: “The trolley was found by a local man walking his badger. At this point we’re not sure how the trolley ended up in the stream, but early indications are it was pushed. We are ruling out any sort of mugging as the trolley was found to still have all its money on it, £1 in a slot on the handle. Its next of kin has been informed.”
