THIEVES stole £3millon worth of make-up from a cosmetics warehouse.

I know this warehouse and I'm surprised given the modern alarm system why didn’t the motion detectors go off?
Very suspicious.

indeed that could be why they threw a distraction, should be enough face paint to feed the umpa lumpurs in Basildon for a while though, I will look out for the pinheads made up like clowns in the near future.

Try looking in Billericay. As this is "Bare" Escentuals make up, it will be as if it is invisible. Now where else would you get people so far along their
dark passages that they would buy the Emperors new Clothes?

Over 2 nights , so no noticed a big hole in the wall, wait a week or two and it will end up on facebook selling pages sold by some dodgy scrubber with a name like rianna or chantelle when they are not selling fake sunglasses
