A thief had a tricky getaway... as his trousers started to fall down as he ran away with some stolen hanging baskets.

The video shows the man, dressed in a grey tracksuit, getting to the front door of the detached house and grabbing the baskets on either side of the front door.

After briefly checking to see that no one has spotted him, the brazen thief is filmed making a run for it - as his bottoms start to slip down his legs.

He then runs towards the woods, with the hanging baskets still in each arm.
