Stoke On Trent Live reported that a ‘desperate’ couple targeted a branch of Asda and tried to steal over £260-worth of food and alcohol, but were tracked around the store on CCTV.

Kelvin Cox and Hannah Hemmings were stopped as they tried to leave and had planned to eat the food and sell the alcohol to supplement their £20-a-week benefits.
