What have toilet rolls, a stilt walker, a pink-haired girl & gothics got in common?

The answer to the above riddle is this little gem of an article which has just popped into my Google Reader from the Isle of Wight County Press. It's a  serious story because criminal damage is no laughing matter but I will just have to weave this into one of my Inspector Horton crime novels somewhere. You can read the article by clicking on the link below to see what I mean but here is a little extract:

Toilet rolls caught fire in suspected arson: "WITNESSES have been urged to come forward after an incident in which toilet rolls caught fire at public toilets in Ryde."

Investigating officer PC Dave Dovey said: "I’m keen to speak with a group of men and women, aged in their late teens to 20s, who may have important information. One of the group was described as a young man, possibly walking on stilts. Another was a woman with pink hair. All of the group were described as dressing in Gothic style clothes."

Now they shouldn't have been hard to miss!
