A THIEF has returned a plant pot stolen from outside a town centre pub in Honiton.

A THIEF has returned a plant pot stolen from outside a town centre pub in Honiton.

The blue china pot, which contained a rose bush and is worth �200, was returned late last Tuesday night - with a letter of apology.

Although the note was not signed, the author explained they had been out on the town in Honiton, had a couple of drinks and woke up in the morning with the plant pot.

He or she could not remember where the pot had come from - but press reports jogged their memory.

The note contained two apologies.
