The moment elderly shopper rebuffs Iceland thief with bacon

This is the moment an 86-year-old woman "defended herself" with a packet of bacon against a would-be thief in an Iceland supermarket.

Police said the shopper "defended herself by repeatedly hitting the female offender over the head with the packet of bacon" in a Facebook post.

But CCTV obtained by Altrincham Today suggests the police report was slightly more dramatic than the actual incident,

The BBC has approached Greater Manchester Police (GMP) for comment.
