Surely it's not beyond the bounds of modern technology to have cameras recording number plates at petrol stations. This would at least mean that a car could be identified pretty quickly. Also the system that waits a month before releasing a picture is pretty cumbersome.

One couldn't possibly comment upon the quality of the petrol served at Waitrose, but I must say that I find the gilt edged receipts to be most ostentatious!

Don't be daft.. Is a fillet steak in the harvester as nice as the Ritz ? Or is the prawns in Asda better than quality taty prawns in waitrose ? Of course you pay more at waitrose but the quality is far better. It don't take a lot of working out. Try the Colliers strong cheddar in waitrose and then try tescos strong and then tell me you are correct.

OK the bill might be £8 more for a full trolley but the waitrose food is much better.

BUT the petrol at waitrose isn't any different and don't make your car go faster, but it cost the petrol thief paid the same price by driving away from waitrose or if he done it at asda..

This form of journalism is illegal on several grounds. Perhaps the Echo should be in court and the people aiding the story.

The man is not convicted of anything, he is just a suspect and yet the article says he committed the offence. That could prejudice a jury, it also could invade his human rights.

Well if you want to get technical the article doesn't state that this man committed an offence, it states they want to speak to this man about a theft of petrol (this could be as witness or as a suspect). It then goes on to say that 'A man' filled his car up with petrol and drove off... no mention it was the man in the picture that drove off with out paying. Of course it is assumed it was this man that drove off without paying but the article does not say that.

The problem with this is that the culprit usually has false or stolen number plates.

The quote is that "Police would like to speak with this man about the theft of petrol from a filling station in Southend." as a man filled a black Vauxhall Corsa with unleaded petrol and drove off without paying.

What is wrong with that? Nothing "illegal" in that report. Police are asking for assistance from the general populance, nothing predudicial with this. Same as putting an e-fit up - nothing wrong with that either.

I presume that the petrol station has video/photo of a man (possibly this man) filling up and absconding. And considering that this happened a month ago, I can also presume that the police have exhaused locating him via APNR systems.

Regarding ANPR, it's common for thieves to pop on a set of fake/stolen plates, fill up and leg it. £80+ for about 10 minutes work total.

Waitrose is expensive for a weekly shop, but if you are just getting a few bits, they are great- especially as their reduced stuff is properly reduced, not by a pittance. The staff are normally a lot friendlier too, it's a workers co-operative so they get good pay and conditions.

Leaving aside the merits of Waitrose which this forum seems to have veered to, the answer to petrol theft has already been solved by Asda. YOU PAY FIRST!

what a tiny trolley you must have then if its only £8 more than Tesco's..do you use one of those small childs plastic ones.? unless you buy the cheapy essentials range, yes that must be it, you get satisfaction of shopping there in full face paint, over powering perfume,freshly coiffured hair do, D&G glasses and Dorothy perkins outfit and walking out with the waitrose bags for life but its full of essential branded items.

you been sussed out.
