Thief trapped in bin

A would-be thief was left in a clothes recycling bin for four hours as he tried to steal used clothes in Bradley Stoke, near Bristol.

CCTV shows the man being pushed into the bin by an accomplice before he is confronted by security staff. The accomplice ran from the scene after security staff confronted them. The fire brigade were called to cut the roof off the bin with hydraulic equipment.

A police statement said: “One man had climbed into the bins and was seen to remove items and hand it to the man outside. When they were approached one man ran off and one remained inside.

“A 28-year-old man from Filton was arrested on suspicion of theft, interviewed and issued with a caution.”
