Sticky thieves

Police are warning shopkeepers of an emerging trend in chewing gum theft.

The warning comes after £1,000 worth of gum was stolen from Asda in Union Street, Grantham.

Two men went into the store at around 4.20pm and stole several boxes of gum.

There were a couple of similar incidents in Lincolnshire last year and officers are warning shop owners and workers to be vigilant.
