Police chief blames forecourt operators for fuel thefts

A police chief has blamed petrol station owners for fuel thefts after it was revealed just two out of 255 incidents in his territory last year resulted in charges.

His comments came after a Freedom of Information request by the Matlock Mercury found that thousands of fuel thefts from petrol stations in Derbyshire were going unpunished.
