Don't Worry, The Stolen Scarecrow Nun Holding Massive Cupcakes Has Been Returned

Sister Mary has been reunited with her creator after a difficult two weeks.

This is Sister Mary, a scarecrow that won second prize at a competition in Caythorpe, Nottinghamshire, earlier this month. Soon afterwards, Mary was STOLEN by scarecrow thieves.

Owner Julia Cons said Mary was last seen "with her feet poking out of the back of a car". Cons had placed her outside her house for others to enjoy, and was annoyed that nun-stealing bandits had deprived passersby of a laugh.

Then, this week, a police community support officer found the scarecrow in Calverton, six miles away, and returned it.

Cons told the BBC: "We were really upset to have her stolen and never imagined we would get her back... I think all the media attention obviously made her too hot to handle."

Just for the record, the winning scarecrow at the competition was a witch stuck in a tree with a sign saying: "Don't drink and fly."

So now you know.
