According to a story in the Macclesfield Express, supermarket giant Tesco is seeking compensation from two shoplifters to help fund security at its stores.

Sarah Cox and Greig Wilson stole more than £100 worth of food and drink during two visits within the space of a week.

Magistrates heard that the supermarket would be taking civil action against the pair.

In a statement read out in court, prosecutor Neil Audley said: “Tesco will be pursuing Cox and Wilson in a civil case for compensation because they have to employ security guards and upgrade their CCTV to deal with shoplifting offences like these.”
