A story in The Mirror gives details of how a Co-op store in Plymouth is hiding expensive steak from customers in a bid to thwart shoplifters.

A sign on the empty shelf blamed ‘deviants’ who keep stealing the choice meat from the busy Co-op branch, taking so much there was little left for genuine customers.

Fed-up staff said the meat was being stolen almost daily, with thieves brazenly walking in and grabbing it without paying.

From April 2014 to March 2016, police recorded 861 incidents of shoplifting from Co-op stores in Plymouth, of which 537 were for “foodstuffs”.
