A Chinese taxi driver unwittingly became the getaway driver for a thief who had just burgled his home. Mr Shen picked up the passenger at a bus stop at around 3am, according to

"He had a lot of home appliances, so I helped him put all of his things into the cab," he said. "I noticed he had a fish without a tail, and I thought how much it looked like the fish in my freezer at home. But then I laughed at myself for even having the thought."

The passenger said he had just returned from a trip to his home town and had been dropped off by a long distance bus. Mr Shen only realised the truth when he later returned home to find his house broken into and his possessions – including the tail-less fish – missing.
