And finally… no inkling

A bungling bank robber left his target empty-handed because bank staff couldn’t make decipher the poor handwriting on his threatening note.

Sussex man Alan Slattery, 67, has been jailed after robbing one bank and attempting to rob two others in the space of two weeks.

He was forced to abandon his first attempt because the bank employee was unable to read the note he slipped them.

However, staff at the bank later managed to decipher the demand to “hand over the 10s and the 20s” and called police.

Mr Slattery pleaded guilty to all three offences and was given a six-year extended sentence comprising four years in custody and two on licence.
