Champagne stolen from Wimbledon

300 boxes (i.e. 1,800 bottles) of Lanson champagne, normally sold for GBP50- a bottle at the tennis tournament, have been stolen by imposters posing as contracters. My take on this? - well I wonder whether weddings taking place over the south east of England in the next few weeks, specially those where outside 'wedding planners' are involved, may end up as being the final destination of this 'bubbly'. Lanson is not a bad champagne, of course, but it is certainly not my favourite - let's hope the same fate doesn't befall the strawberries and cream, now that would be a disaster!
