We look back to the Lincs Free Press this week in 2011

A milkman had to vary his route and change the places he left bottles for customers in a bid to beat the thieves in 2011.

Merv Pattinson, who worked for Capital Dairy – previously Pinchbeck Dairies – had an ongoing problem with his customers’ milk being pilfered from doorsteps.

Mr Pattinson resorted to hiding the pintas in sheds, porchesand bins.

Administrator Sarah Dring said: “We do have a problem in Spalding – there seems to have been a real spate over the summer.”
