Sock-stealing cat burglar takes Loughborough by storm
A moggy called Henry has become Loughborough's most famous cat burglar after the feline returned with a large haul of socks for its owner Anne Brandon.

The cat, which has done away with the traditional capture of dead birds and mice, instead looks for hosiery to bring back to his master - something which has caused a lot of embarrassment for Ms Brandon, the Loughborough Echo reported.

She explained: "I've no idea where he's getting them from, the neighbours think it's hysterical.

"Someone's obviously missing them and if people are aware that it's happening they could perhaps put them somewhere different so he can't do it anymore."

Socks have been on the agenda in both Loughborough and Littleborough, with the latter town's most famous daughter, Agyness Deyn, pushing the trend of knee-high socksin Manhattan this month.
