The Manchester Evening News carries a story of a binman who swiped 8,000 rolls of biodegradable bags from his employers and made more then £11,000 selling them online.

Paul Strickland was meant to hand out the bags on his rounds but instead, between December 2014 and May 2015, he stole 1.5m bags and made £11,730 selling the bags at £7 a roll.
