FOUR people were arrested in Stroud today with a car boot full of stolen sunscreen.

The four suspects travelled down from Birmingham and stole a large quantity of sun block products in Gloucester this morning.

They were arrested in Stroud this afternoon and are now in custody.

Their car, which was found to be uninsured, was also seized.

Stroud Police tweeted: "They must have seen the forecast.

"To paraphrase Mr Luhrmann - Everybody's free to wear sunscreen, but please pay for it first."

This refers to Baz Luhrmann's song Wear Sunscreen, featured on his 1998 album Something For Everybody, and released as a single in 1999.

It hit number one in the UK and Ireland, due to a media campaign by Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles.
