Thief gives police the finger... literally

Detectives traced a suspected thief after he left his severed finger at the crime scene.

The digit was found at a South Shields building site after workers reported the theft of a motorbike on Tuesday.

Officers then took the finger to South Tyneside Hospital, where they found a man waiting in the accident and emergency department without a finger.

It is believed the alleged thief ripped his finger off after becoming trapped under a crashed motorbike.
