Retail bosses have warned of an increase in shoplifting as the cost of living crisis drives people to take ‘desperate’ measures. Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows cases of shoplifting rose 21 percent in the year ending March 2022.

The chairman John Allan told Times Radio some people “literally got no money left” and were taking “desperate measures”.

He said: “Shoplifting is a concern and you know, getting the police to take action and respond to cases where we and other retailers…this is a concern right across the retail trade.

He added: “Yes, we are putting more security presence into those of our stores that are most impacted by shoplifting. But we’re doing that selectively.”
