WATCH: Papplewick pumpkin thieves caught in the act

A Nottinghamshire man has released CCTV footage of people stealing carved pumpkins from outside his home.

Tim Brealey, 44, from Papplewick, thought it was a Halloween trick when his spooky vegetables first started going missing two weeks ago.

But CCTV footage showed otherwise, when he found he had to replace his pumpkins several times because they had been stolen.

The thieves can be seen driving up to the house in their cars before making a speedy getaway with the pumpkins.
