Greenwich - (Ass Mess): Police officers investigating the torching of the Cutty Sark are following up new leads that a renegade gang of disgruntled 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' movie watchers set fire to the 19th century clipper after experiencing nauseous side-effects from sitting through the three hour rehash.
A criminal profile of the gang says they may also be Chelsea FC supporters given the film's title which refers to the famous London SW10 landmark pub called The World's End, located just a stone's throw from the football club's ground,
The new arson theory also focuses on Keith Richards's cameo role as Captain Jack Sparrow's father because the famous Rolling Stone once lived near the Chelsea pub and had a recreational habit of trashing hotels, planes and ships.
Salvage experts today are continuing their examination of the charred Cutty remains amid rumors that the ship's insurance was invalid.
A restoration appeal has brought in pledges of cash, the best of which is the promise a major donation from a proposed Hollywood blockbuster about the damaged clipper.
The plotline focuses not on deranged Chelsea supporters but on rival Manchester United fans whose team was thrashed one nil in the Cup Final against Chelsea last Saturday.
A statement is expected at noon tomorrow.
