  1. I got a letter through the post today from the Manchester BRCP. As stated, I can't post a pdf or anything but the organisation do have a website (just google manchester brcp) The letter has my personal details at the top and a line stating that "On this date you were involved in an incident concerning dishonesty/ criminal damage/ violence/ verbal abuse/ anti-social beahviour (Circle as appropriate) [dishonesty is circled]" Underneath that there's a box and that states "DETAINED FOR THEFT" It goes on to state: "A record of this incident/ offence has been retained by the b

As soon as I was stopped, one of them noticed my works ID round my neck and removed my pass which had my details on it. The paperwork was completed quite quickly and as seems to be the norm on here, no police were called, I received a letter banning me from all B&Qs and told that my details would be passed on to the civil recovery people who would send me a fine (which I shall ignore, yes?).
