It's all gone a bit Carry On over at the BBC. BBC News England relayed an appeal for the safe return of this entirely innocent (cough cough, yoinks at collar) nun scarecrow.

Apparently the scarecrow, called 'Cupcake, Vicar?', was stolen after claiming second prize in the scarecrow contest held in Caythorpe, Nottinghamshire.

Needless to say, the tweet caused a great amount of smirking on social media.

She caused great mirth among unsuspecting passers-by who tended to stop and come back for a second look.

I couldn't believe somebody has stolen her but I'm trying to keep some perspective on it.

She's been a bit of entertainment in the village and they [the culprits] have spoilt that and ruined it for other people.
