A new group calling itself The Militant Wing of the Daily Mail Readership (MWDMR), is believed to be behind the hijacking of a lorry late last night on the M25 that was carrying 50,000 pedometers to be used by Spot Relief as part of this year's charity appeal.
Claiming responsibility for the action this morning the group released the following statement. There is a rising tide of depravity engulfing this country and we have had enough. It's time for the moral majority to act. This is the first of these actions but we avow that it will not to be the last. These evil devices have now been destroyed and been placed out of harm's way for good.
And in the wake of the hijacking there are reports this morning that police are stepping up security outside nail bars and pedicure salons as a precautionary measure.
