Never mind the £50million heist, the nation nearly fell victim to another, more serious crime on Thursday night: the second kasabian album tapes were nearly stolen.

For some reason, they had the tapes with them in the hotel they stayed in for the NME awards (they were robbed there, too, they reckon) when a chummy decided to try and grab them:

"Several fellow hotel guests were going to their rooms when they saw a man with a shaved head wearing gloves trying to shoulder the door open," an unnamed source says.

"When he realised he'd been spotted, he took off down the emergency escape stairs."

Rumours that all he intended to do was wipe the things could not be confirmed, but if true: better luck next time, mate.
