The Shields Gazette reports that a mother-and-daughter crime duo have admitted being part of a shoplifting gang who sold their stolen wares on Facebook.

Dawn Bainbridge, 46, and Claire Bainbridge, 21, took clothing and property from high street chain stores which would then be advertised for sale over the social networking site and on eBay.

Shops in South Tyneside and Sunderland were targeted by the fraudsters and Dawn Bainbridge also admitted seven charges of thefts of hundreds of pounds worth of goods and clothing from Marks & Spencers, House of Fraser, Evans, Next, River Island, British Home Stores, and the Disney store in Sheffield during a spree in February.
