A town council mayor has been charged with breaking into women's homes and stealing underwear.
Ian Stafford, 58, who has reportedly resigned as Mayor of Preesall in Lancashire, was charged on Monday by Lancashire Police with three counts of burglary in connection with the missing garments.
Female residents called in police after their underwear kept disappearing and one woman even installed a hidden camera in her bedroom.
