    I take it the people involved did not use their Tesco 'club-cards'??

    What a stupid comment to make, I know people who work in this shop and have yet to find out whether or not they were on duty, I also know people who have been in this position before except on that occasion the perpetrators got away with several thousand pounds worth of stock and cash so unless to can have some sort of understanding of how scary it must have been for the staff or you have been in this sort of situation yourself maybe you should keep your sarcastic comments to yourself

    One would assume local idiots and they will get caught, they always do. Their mouths are as flappy as their arms. There is always a batch of undesirables of all ages hanging around that area and they would probably be the first ones to complain if all the shops disappeared and they had to (god forbid) walk further afield to hurl abuse at people for no apparent reason. Same happening up Ashley Road in Parkstone, all you see now is stinking drunkards wobbling all over the place shouting, robbing, puking etc. The area is in rapid decline I am sad to say. They have no respect for residents, the police or themselves, so what chance is there?

    What chance is there? What because a minority of drunks and idiots cause a bit of chaos. You need to get some perspective, the vast majority of residents of P/B/C lead perfectly normal law abiding lives, there are over half a million people in the conurbation and our society is unlikely to collapse anytime soon.

    Hope all involved in the above incident are ok and not too badly affected.

    I hope the member of staff recovers soon, I used to live in that area always a crime going on that's why they made the inside out programme for the worst safer neighbourhood team for dealing with crime in the country! That's a couple of years ago see nothing has changed. I'm glad I moved away from there it's a shame as some of the neighbours were lovely

    Perspective noted. Please note I used the word 'batch' which does indicate an isolated group. My beef is with the idiots and the problems they cause with no regards for the majority.

    I dare say the situation may have been somewhat harrowing for the staff involved.
