I was with my 10-year-old Son and only popped in to get him a sandwich, but ended up getting other bits...I spent £75.00 We got the Sarnie and I told my son to put it in my own empty shopping bag to stop him squishing it, I also picked up hand cream which I put into bag ( i cannot use baskets) I also got nightie, an two bras which I held. As, i was paying the cashier made conversation which diverted me, and I did not pay for Sandwich or Hand cream. I was stopped by security, they took a photo of me without asking.

I left the Sandwich and hand cream there. … read more
