The Christchurch police have distributed this poster to try and catch a teenage burglar who apparently resembles actor Robbie Coltrane.

The police actually know who they are looking for but the law prevents them from publishing photos of juvenile criminals.

It's a rather surreal story but it's made the British media! A quick check revealed that the story had made The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Guardian and the BBC News.

The poster says Coltrane is English but he's actually Scottish.

Coltrane is also 58 years old, lives in Stirlingshire, and would struggle to fit through the average patio door, let alone window.
