Inside Out West Midlands, broadcast on 28 January, reported on the problem of shoplifting from charity shops across the Midlands. Estimates suggest that Compton Hospice is losing around 6% of takings because of theft.
The programme also includes advice from a security expert and a reformed thief on how to help prevent shoplifting. For example, through better store layout and the use of CCTV cameras and closer monitoring of changing rooms and jewellery cabinets.
The episode of Inside Out West Midlands is available to view online until Sunday 3 February 2013.
