The supermarket sweep: I don't nick stuff, unlike you, probably...

So, people are quite fond of pilfering stuff from supermarkets. And it's all the fault of those self-service tills that seem designed to relieve you of your money and your sanity in roughly equal measure.
This comes on the back of a survey conducted by Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology, which also points out that stealing from self-service tills is no different from hiding goods in a handbag and adds, helpfully, that: "The method of observation at a self-service till may be more of a temptation than being watched by someone."
Who wudda thunk it?
