Austrian police say thieves have made off with an unusual heist - 21 tons of mustard and ketchup.

The loot was in a lorry parked over the weekend to the north west of Vienna.

Police say the truck driver showed up on Monday to deliver his cargo only to see the trailer missing.

Police assume the thieves were more interested in the trailer than its contents.

Authorities had no price tag for the stolen condiments but said the trailer was worth about 15,000 euros (£13,100) .
