Swann's car swiped by thieves

Andrew Miller

Graeme Swann has “wished a freak accident with a blunt instrument” on the thieves who broke into his Nottingham house and, according to a report in The Sun, stole the keys to his Jaguar while he was away in Barbados preparing for the forthcoming ICC World Twenty20.

The incident, which occurred when Swann’s wife Sarah left their house in West Bridgford, continued a run of motoring mishaps for Swann. Earlier this month he was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving – an incident he said was caused when his cat, Max, got trapped underneath the floorboards at 3 o’clock in the morning.

Of the Jaguar theft, Swann wrote online: “I hope the chaps who broke into my house while I am away are involved in a freak accident with a blunt instrument very soon.” Nothing else was taken in the incident.
