Trophies are stolen – level 2

28-01-2015 07:00

Thieves used a car to break through the doors of a Formula One team Red Bull Racing factory in England and stole 60 trophies.

Later, people recovered around 20 trophies from a lake where the thieves dumped them. The people on the Red Bull staff said that they were absolutely devastated. The emotional value of the trophies is great to them.

Anyone with information should contact the police.

Difficult words: dump (to throw something away), staff (people who work somewhere), devastate (to be very sad).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
