Gnash and grab! Police release bizarre e-fit in hope to catch burglar

A bizarre e-fit picture issued by police has attracted a lot of attention after people compared the wanted man to Zippy from Rainbow and the Cheshire Cat from Alice In Wonderland.

One Facebook user, Jen Wyatt, said: "Seriously had to check the date wasn't 1st April!"
