At around 5pm on Thursday 11 November 2021, a man entered a supermarket in London Road where it is alleged he attempted to steal a quantity of clothing and confectionery.
He was challenged as he tried to leave the premises and is reported to have made racist comments towards a member of staff, before leaving empty-handed.
