No money for food
   "I only took the money because I was off work and we had no money in the house to buy food" was the explanation given to Wigan County Magistrates, on Friday, by Brian Latham (20) unemployed labourer of 399 Warrington Road, Abram, who admitted stealing from a radio receiver 1 12s. 0d. between 17th and 28th August, the monies of the Bell Radio, Platt Bridge.
   Inspector G. T. D. Rayner said that the lock on the receiver had been forced and the money was missing. When interviewed at his home by Pol. Cons. Hoyle, deft. said "Yes, I did it. I have been off work sick for a fortnight and was short of money."
   Deft. told the Bench that he had not worked since June. He had offered the money to Mr. Robert Bell, the proprietor, but he would not take it. He was also taking away the TV set.
   Deft. was fined 2 and was ordered to make restitution of 1 12s. 0d. to Mr. Bell.
