A woman from Coventry has been sentenced to 14 weeks in prison for shoplifting while faking a disability in the style of Andy and Lou from ‘Little Britain’.

Leoni Clare, from Masser Road, Holbrooks, was caught on CCTV in a Marks and Spencer food store at a service station in Finham last month.

The footage shows the 28-year-old in a wheelchair browsing the shelves before standing up unaided and hiding several items in her rucksack and coat.

The video was released on social media and Clare was identified a short while later.
