Dozens of Looters Steal Water Left for London's Marathon Runners watch

    • Thread Starter

    The mob were pictured descending on tables laid out with liquid in Deptford, south-east London, just after the 26.2 mile event started.

    Eyewitnesses say a group of opportunistic thieves started stealing the bottles minutes after the front runners had passed through.

    One man even brought a trolley with him to pile up crates of the water which should have been much needed refreshment for the athletes


    How can people do this? If you look at the pictures it there seems to be one thing in common.
