Police have been mulling the possible reasons for why someone would steal a dog poo bin from a seaside resort.

It was unscrewed from its mounting and taken at Fisherman's Cove in East Portlemouth, Devon sometime between Tuesday or Wednesday.

"Over the years I've investigated many crimes," said a police spokesman. "Some interesting, some not so. This one is up there on the [interesting] list."

Officers are looking for leads to locate the bin, "but not its contents".
