Scrap metal thieves steal 800 carts from Asda store... after paying £1 each for them

Thieves have stolen more than 800 shopping trolleys from a supermarket - leaving the store with a bill for £64,000.

The Asda store has seen row after row of trolleys go missing over 12 days and it is thought that they are being sold as scrap metal.

The theft was carried out at a supermarket car park at the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Basildon, Essex.

Asda spokesman Jo Newbould said: 'Large numbers of trolleys have been taken from our supermarket.

'Police are investigating why they were stolen, but they obviously weren't used by people to take their shopping home.

'They're expensive for us to replace too. While there are not as many trolleys as we would like at the Eastgate store at the moment, we have ordered replacements.

'We would urge everyone to keep an eye out for people stealing trolleys, as it causes a lot of inconvenience for customers if there are less available.'
