Sharks Fail to Deter Burglars
- Heist at the London Aquarium nets catch worth thousands

JUST inside the entrance to the London Aquarium stands a huge tank containing several toothy sharks. As guard dogs go, these are pretty impressive you might think.

You'd think wrong because yesterday the aquarium was burgled. Two thieves broke into the attraction, on London's South Bank, at 9.30am and managed to escape with tens of thousands of pounds.

Both were wearing masks, police have confirmed, though it is thought unlikely these were of the diving-with-snorkel-attached variety.
