Jamie Neil, a 41 year old from Bethel, Cornwall, has been jailed for two years for his role in robbing a Co-Op petrol station in St Austell, Cornwall in September last year. He and his accomplice were easily tracked down through CCTV footage, after Neil employed what has been described by the investigating officer as the most 'ridiculous' disguise he had ever come across.

The robbery was a farce from the outset, but is it really the worst disguise ever used?
