Hi Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.
Just to clarify, the police took no action over this?
No, he wrote what had happened in his notebook which she had to sign then asked if she would be willing to pay £30 to one of M&S 's charrities, which she did and she had to sign that as well. then they took her name and address,and asked if she had been in trouble before and she said she hadn't.
she is so worried about it and would never do anything like that again. Can they take her to court. Shes also got a ban from shopping in M&S
Yes they were in saleable condition, they had the sales label on them.I forgot to say my friend is in her late 60s.
Will she have to pay anything to the recovery programme as the paper M&S gave her said the solicitors Drydensfairfax will be notifying her of the amount to be charged for cost of security detection and other loss recovery costs. Also does it mean she can never go to M&S again.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX that will be the end of it as she was worried the police might contact her about it
would the police keep this on their records
How long would they keep the security tapes for
Forgot to say they said theyd been watching her and had a picture of her taken in the store a few days before so what shed like to know is they must have been watching her then so what if they try to say she was trying to steal something then
would they be likely to go back and look at tapes of other times shed been in the store
Its just that they said theyd been watching her thats made her feel bad.
What if they thought she'd done it before?
how long will the police keep the record that they attended
