British plot hacked down Down Under
AN EAGLE-eyed Aussie watching on webcam tipped off police about two men acting suspiciously 17,000km away.
Andrew Pritchard was logged on to a site relaying live images from the English town of Exmouth when something caught his eye.
As he watched the computer screen at his home in the remote NSW town of Boorowa, he saw a car pull up in a dark deserted street and two men spill out before heading toward a closed beachfront kiosk.
Using his mouse to swivel the camera around, the 62-year-old audio-visual professional was able to follow the unfolding action.
"They were walking around as if casing it out and I got all excited," he said.
Certain he was witnessing a burglary on the other side of the world, Mr Pritchard rang the Devon police.
"I'm calling from Australia," Mr Pritchard told the policeman on the other end of the line. "I'm watching a live webcam of Exmouth esplanade. I believe I'm witnessing a burglary of the kiosk."
Within minutes, while still on the phone to a British police officer, he saw a police car arrive on his computer screen and mount the footpath. Two police cars approached the kiosk from different sides.
