[Torygraph Alert] Allotments thefts rise as credit crisis causes vegetable crimewave (26 Jun 2008)

Allotments have been targeted by vegetable thieves, as more people grow their own produce in response to the credit crisis.

Allotments have enjoyed a boom few years, with many people seeing their gardening as a way of saving on fruit and vegetable bills.

However, it would now seem that thieves are taking advantage of this green revolution.

It's not because of the "credit crisis" but because of the "food crisis" that this happens.
