Early morning shoppers at a Suffolk Tesco store got a shock when two shoplifters charged out of the supermarket with a television and a hoover.

The incident happened between 6.25am and 6.40am at Sudbury's Springlands Way Tesco store yesterday, and police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
