Man arrested over knicker thefts
A man has been arrested after he was found in possession of a large amount of women's underwear.

The 40-year-old was carrying plastic bags full of knickers and other garments when stopped by police in Church Road, Portsmouth, on Tuesday.

Officers said women's underwear had been taken from washing lines across the city.

Police have appealed for women who have had underwear stolen to come forward and collect the garments.

The man was questioned and then bailed until 26 April.
