Police in London's Brixton have launched a huge campaign warning iPod users that street robbers are targeting MP3 player users.

Dozens of bright yellow posters have appeared all around the area, with the words: "They want your Pod!" emblazoned across the top.

An amusing report on Digital Lifestyles shows pictures of the Metropolitan Police's grim warning to iPod users, depicting a slight frame in silhouette wearing tell-tale white earphones facing a much larger silhouette in a threatening stance.

The campaign is apparently part of the 'Safer Lambeth' scheme against street crime in the borough.
