Warwickshire Police have come in for a degree of ridicule over the past day, thanks to an e-fit picture issued of a burglary suspect.

The UK police force posted the image to Twitter yesterday, saying that they were looking for the suspect in relation to a 'distraction burglary' in Straford-upon-Avon.


After the initial reaction - it has been re-tweeted 17,000 times and liked 26,000 times in less than 24 hours - they posted a follow-up tweet saying that they had "anticipated the attention" and confirmed that it was real.



Of course, the internet being the internet, people have been posting their thoughts on who the culprit might be...
