A MAN has appeared at Worksop Magistrates’ Court charged with shoplifting beer and a Worksop Guardian newspaper.
Michael Sanders, 41, of Kipling Close, admitted taking four cans of Special Brew and a newspaper from the store.
David Verity, defending, said Sanders had battled drink for years.
“He just split from his partner, he needed a drink and wanted to read the local news, so he took the items.”
Sanders was fined £90 in total.
