Moving the goalposts

A thief was caught red-handed in Sweden with a quarter of a tonne of goalposts in his van.

Authorities discovered the horde of cut-up goalposts and crossbars in his van when stopped in a routine police check in the southern town of Tomelilla.

Lasse Bengtstroem, 50, said he planned to sell the metal on to scrap dealers who are paying high prices for the aluminium used in the goals.
