  Thieves steal 500k of chocolate
Updated 04 October 2004, 11.56

Thieves have stolen more than 500,000 of chocolate from seven lorries in an early morning raid in Lancashire.

On Sunday five men wearing ski masks took the lorries, each with around 80,000 worth of Cadbury's goodies in them, including loads of Easter eggs.

The gang tied up two security guards and a driver, and held them in a field five miles from the scene of the heist.

The men weren't hurt, but Lancashire Police said they were "obviously shaken up" after their ordeal.

Four of the trucks have since been found empty but three are still missing.
