  12. Feb 2008: The police in Cheb recently got more proof of the fact that it is possible to steal virtually anything. They were called out to investigate the disappearance of a railway bridge weighing four tonnes.

    The company which was responsible for looking after the bridge raised the alarm when, ever alert, they noticed that the bridge wasn't there any more.

    The bridge was on a disused stretch of line just outside Cheb.

    Martina Hruskova, a spokeswoman for the Czech police, commented to AFP: 'We are not sure if it was taken for personal use or for its scrap value.' Exactly what that 'personal use' might be was left unsaid.

    'It is the first time we have dealt with this type of theft,' she added.

    Of course, it's not the first time some light-fingered bridge enthusiast has made off with a bridge. At least two bridges have been nicked in Russia in the past six months, and a pair of bridge thieves appropriated two Macedonian bridges last February.

    Nothing to show it was actually pikies. My theory on this is that it's a russian gang looking far and wide. Could be unemployed former steel erectors, or even sappers! Moving a high tonnage of steel quickly and easily takes some doing too. I imagine that a boat/barge/ship would have been used as it would be easier to spot it all moving on the road.
