Man wakes to find front lawn stolen
An Ipswich man has said he cannot believe people "would stoop so low" as to steal his artificial front lawn.
Steve Woolnough said his wife was the first to notice the 100-ft-sq turf was missing from the front garden of their home in Bramford Lane.
"I didn't believe it," he said. "A few expletives were uttered."
He added: "I haven't got a clue why anyone would take it, but the hosepipe ban is coming in and maybe someone wanted it for their own garden."
He said he bought the turf for £130 about six years ago after his grass turned yellow and brown in the summer and it would cost about £250 to replace.
Mr Woolnough said the turf, which was not stuck down, was too heavy for one person to carry and thieves probably used a vehicle to take it away.
