Thieves use a canalboat to ransack a shop in Nottingham

The thieves stole the narrowboat from moorings outside the Canal House pub in the early hours of 9 June and moved it along the canal to a door that gave them access to the back of the shop.
They then abandoned the boat, broke into the shop, and stole £2000 in cash and £3500 worth of cigarettes before making their escape.
The narrowboat, which belongs to Nottingham City Council’s Narrowboat Project, was later found drifting on the canal.
