Police in northern England are using padlocks to stop light-fingered colleagues from pinching their milk.
A trainee officer tweeted a snap Sunday showing the extreme measures that some cops at the Halifax Police Station in West Yorkshire are taking to protect their plastic containers of the white stuff in the communal fridge.
One was even wrapped in biohazard warning tape to scare possible pilferers away. "When he said find one without a padlock, thought he was joking..!" wrote the trainee officer, PC Ryan Sharp.
