An occupational hazard

It’s a source of constant pride that some of the country’s most stupid criminals live right here, in South Yorkshire:

INTRUDERS armed with a gun and a baseball bat burst into a house in South Yorkshire – and then realised they had got the wrong house.

The men, who both wore stockings to mask their faces, stormed into the house off Barnsley Road, Cudworth, one of them carrying a shotgun and the other armed with a wooden bat.

One of the thugs pointed the gun at the male occupant and ordered to him to take them into his cellar.

Police said the man “feared for his safety” and did as he was told – but once in the cellar the gunman said he had the wrong house, apologised and fled with his accomplice.

When this kind of thing happens, you know you’re in the wrong profession; I can’t imagine this ‘too stupid for TV’ blunder builds you much respect in the criminal fraternity. But at least the apology was a nice touch.
