Kidnappers are snatching a victim in London on average every day, with some gangs demanding hundreds of thousands of pounds in ransom, Scotland Yard has said.
It seems there were 358 kidnappings here last year - at least those were the ones reported. The Standard will probably get all hysterical again, but then it doesn't take much (did we really see a WAR WITH FRANCE headline last week?). This kind of thing is mostly intergang related so you're probably only at risk if your name is Knuckles or Lefty.
By a strange quirk of coincidence we also noticed this odd DLR mini site yesterday: Body Snatchers.
