Police in Liverpool are searching for a thief who stole £50 worth of bacon from a supermarket.

Shortly before 11.15am on Christmas Eve, the man walked into the Sainsbury’s store at Liverpool Central station and stole £50 of bacon.

“We have viewed CCTV from the store and it appears the man simply walked into the shop, selected the bacon, and placed the meat into a satchel before calmly walking away.

“And our enquiries have revealed the man returned to the shop on New Year’s Even and stole a further £10 of bacon.”
