An illegal can of pepper spray was found by police in the exact spot two teenagers were found “looking for a lost mobile phone”.  

An officer was cycling to work on Lynn Road in Wisbech just before 8.30pm on Sunday, December 20 when he spotted the teens searching a hedge.  

The boys told the officer they were hunting for a missing iPhone which they were unable to describe or say how it was lost before cycling away.
