If you found some unopened bottles of alcohol in a car park, apparently placed there as a New Year’s ‘gift to the public’, would you take them?
That was the choice facing visitors to Sheringham’s Morris Street car park - just behind the Sainsbury’s - on January 1.
Among them was 75-year-old Wendy Maxwell, from Hellesdon, who drove to the north Norfolk seaside town for a brisk walk along the beach with members of her family.
Mrs Maxwell said she was surprised to find the stash of unopened bottles, which were lined up neatly next to a ticket machine.
She said: “We were there about midday, and we saw these packets of beer, as well as spirits and Malibu, that sort of thing, all unopened.
“There must have been about £100 worth.
“It looked as though it was there for people to help themselves.”
Also there were cans of Carling and Stella Artois beer and a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream.
Mrs Maxwell added: “We didn’t take any, but then, when we came back from a walk by the sea, some of it had gone.”
