A man caught on camera stealing a charity box from a Sheffield shop is being hunted by the police.

He struck at the Billy Clarke Fishing Tackle shop, Alderson Road, Highfield, last Friday - without realising that his actions were captured on a CCTV camera inside.

The owners of the shop have released the footage on Facebook in the hope of identifying the crook, who escaped with a charity box for Heeley City Farm.

Co-owner Tom Clark said: "It's pretty low to steal from a charity.

"The response to the video has been very good, with a number of shops reporting charity box thefts recently."

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
