The Lincolnshire Echo has revealed almost 5,000 incidents of shoplifting were recorded in Lincoln over the last three years.

Around 30 shoplifting incidents every week are recorded in the city and among the favourite spots for thieves are Debenhams and the Boots store on the High Street.

David Dexter, chairman of the Lincoln branch of the Federation of Small Businesses, accused police of too often ignoring such crimes.

“Unless the police undertake zero tolerance, it won’t go away,” he said. “Petty thieving is almost acceptable. Police often don’t bother looking into cases like that.”
