Police in Germany are hunting a gang of British conmen who passed off a bag of spuds as a hoard of iPods.

They convinced gullible bargain hunters to hand over the equivalent of £600 for what they believed to be a bag of MP3 players.

The swindlers had shown their customers electronic goodies, including laptops and mobile phones, before agreeing the price for a bag of second hand iPods.

But, after the deal was done in Braunschweig, they later opened the bag to find they had been passed off with about 2kg of potatoes.
