A blundering shoplifter was caught and fined - after accidentally leaving his name and address at the scene.

Damien Beckett, 35, fled Tesco with a haul of goods, but left behind a carrier bag containing documents.

Security staff looked inside and found papers bearing his name, address and date of birth.

A court heard police raided Beckett's home in Swansea and found shoplifted goods worth £56.57, which were returned to the supermarket.

Beckett, who is unemployed, admitted theft and was fined £40 by Brecon magistrates.
