Three youths proved to be more Jammy Dodgers than Artful Dodgers after stealing boxes of Cadbury Snack! shortcake biscuits from Burton’s factory in Devonshire Road, Blackpool.

Police were called to the factory at 7.10pm on Wednesday after the teenage boys scaled a fence before stealing the goodies from a trailer.

Empty boxes were later found thrown on the ground in the nearby Layton Cemetery, angering residents.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said no other reports of similar thefts had been reported in the past month.

Burton’s has been contacted for a comment.
