Antony Worrall Thompson cautioned for Tesco shoplifting

Antony Worrall Thompson opened his first restaurant in London in 1981TV chef on Tory recipe for success

TV chef Antony Worrall Thompson has been cautioned by police for shoplifting.

Police arrested the 60-year-old at the Tesco store in Reading Road, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, on Friday.

Mr Worrall Thompson, from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, was questioned and given a formal caution.

A police spokesman said the incident involved "low value goods". Tesco declined to comment describing it as a "police matter".

Ready, Steady, Cook

In a statement, police added: "Thames Valley Police arrested a 60-year-old man from High Wycombe following a report of shoplifting offences.

"The man has been issued with a formal caution for these offences."

The chef has appeared on shows including the BBC's Ready, Steady, Cook and ITV's Daily Cooks Challenge.

He opened his first restaurant in London in 1981.

In 2009, he had to close four of his restaurants because of an "unexpected but decisive fall in revenue across the businesses from September 2008".

What a surprise, a rich person gets a caution following shop lifting offences whereas anyone else would be prosecuted.

It's always one rule for them and another for everyone else. Maybe, as his businesses are facing hard times, he should become an MP now so he can fiddle his expenses and get away with that too? boohoo

He saw a "small window of opportunity" and went for it! Maybe if he sent an old picture of one of his failed restaurants he could have earned some cash for the privilege of the media showing it, then he wouldn't need to shoplift anymore...easy money

I wish people would use the word "Theft" rather than 'shoplifting'.

'Low value goods'

I heard earlier it was alcohol. I didn't have him down as a cheap wine drinker.

It's just been on the news. Cheese and wine on 5 seperate occasions, through the self service check-out.

This reminds me of Richard Madley. sarcastic

I expect that those of us of mature years - to put it politely - will remember the sad story of Lady Isobel Barnett who was a big name on TV in the 1950s and 1960s, particularly in the show What's My Line. She was convicted of what seemed like an isolated incident of theft from her local shop but it transpired that she had been stealing for a long time and the shop keeper only decided to prosecute when he could no longer withstand the losses.

She committed suicide in 1980 shortly after being convicted.

And of course technically she was Isobel, Lady Barnett, since she held the courtesy title from her husband Sir Geoffrey.

So Anthony Worrall Thompson gets a caution and a criminal record for stealing some cheese and the McCanns get to become protected millionaires for what they allowed to happen to their 3 year old daughter.

I agree wholeheartedly. Joy-riding is another weak name for theft.

Sheesh... just how much wine & cheese did AWT nick from Tesco?

TESCO had more than £4.3BILLION wiped from its share price today after its
first profit warning for at least 20 YEARS.
