A Lego police helicopter was hastily assembled and scrambled in the skies above a West Yorkshire business park, after thieves were discovered to have stolen £40,000 worth of Lego. So be on the lookout for shady men offering you discounted minifigs in pubs.

According to police, 16 entire pallets of the Chima-licensed Lego range were stolen when a lorry was broken into some time late on Wednesday night. Showing a keen investigative mind and an awareness of cultural events, local officer Terry O'Keeffe said: "Lego is particularly topical at the moment with the film out and if you are offered for sale something that is too good to be true then it usually is."
