The Arundel story is made all the better for a comment left on it by a reader which says:

Arundel eh? The Fire station catches fire, the police station gets burgled, bet the peeps in the ambulance station are getting worried…


And finally… the first story also says that:

While the drop in burglaries is good news, there is bad news for other Sussex residents. People living in Hove are the clumsiest in the country, according to the report.

I can only think that all the policemen on duty in Arundel police station had commuted from Hove.
