WATCH: Ordinary people take on thieves and win

VICTORY!

EVERY TIME YOU go on holiday, you get the same lecture from your mam.

You know the one.  No matter what your destination is, she’ll tell you some horror story about the pickpockets there.  ’The worst in the world’, she’ll say, and you’ll probably just ignore her.

The thing is, pickpockets are out there, and if you’re not careful you could be a victim.

Unless you fight them off, of course, like this French woman did while on holiday in Italy.

Word is that they were later caught.  Good enough for them.

There is something really wonderful about seeing thieves fought off, isn’t there?

Let’s raise our fists in the air for all those who have fought off nasty robbers.

This man who fought off a thief despite his trousers falling down

We particularly enjoy the casual grace he employs when pulling them up afterwards.

And then of course there are the burglars you don’t even have to fight off

Safety first though people, don’t forget that you can replace a handbag, but not your health.
