Welsh police have blamed director Quentin Tarantino's bloody movies for the rise in British crime.

The North Wales Police Department complain they investigated 11 murders between April and November last year (04) compared with just two in the same period in 2003.

And they believe films like Tarantino's KILL BILL series have contributed to the dramatic increase in physical attacks, by glamorising violence.

Welsh Police Constable CLIVE WOLFENDALE says, "In today's society more people are likely to spend their evenings watching a Quentin Tarantino movie than reading JANE AUSTEN.

"Perhaps we should not be surprised by the consequences. We need more PERSUASION (Austen's classic book) and less Kill Bill."
