Here is one for the weird files. The Nevis Canoe Club in Fort William, UK was in the process of installing a new shed to house the three new sea kayaks they purchased.

The only problem is that somebody has come along and stolen the shed.

Nevis Canoe Club secretary, Dave Parfitt told the Lochaber News: "We just can't believe this has happened. The club raised £1,100 for the new shed and now it's gone."

"We reckon it has been taken in the last 10 to 14 days and all that is left are the flagstones we are using for the foundation."

"Whoever has done this has gone to some considerable effort to move the materials as it took four of us to lift it off the trailer and into the courts."
