A woman unwittingly took her own photo when she tried to unlock an iPhone that had been stolen from the Coalition nightclub in Brighton UK earlier this month.

Sussex Police spokesman, PC Gavin Crute said: "The owner of the camera has a rather cool app that takes a picture of anyone who tries to unlock it, maps their current location and then sends all the info back to the owner in an e-mail.

"We know where and when the photo was taken and it appears to be in a vehicle with quite a large sunroof. We don't know that the woman is the person who stole the camera, but she obviously has had some connection with it in the meantime and I'd like to speak to her about it."
