Major Crime Update

Whenever I come across a major crime that has been either averted or brought to justice by an imaginative or leading-edge piece of legislation I shall try to tell you about it.
Here's the first:-
CHESIL BEACH The Booker Prize-winning novelist Ian McEwan yesterday replaced pebbles he took from a protected beach, after being threatened with a £2,000 fine. Mr McEwan, oblivious to by-laws, grabbed a handful of shingle from Chesil Beach in Dorset during research for his latest book, On Chesil Beach. Mr McEwan “confessed” on Start The Week on Radio 4, and was asked to return the stones by Weymouth and Portland Borough Council.
