This is the shocking moment a thief stole a charity tin from a shop counter.

It's understood the tin contained around £40.

Store manager Samet Uguzhan, who has worked at the supermarket in Bristol for 10 years said: "I was with a customer inside the store.

"When I came back to the counter I saw something was missing and realised it was one of the charity boxes.

“It's the first time it's happened."

The charity box was raising money for the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Avon and Somerset Police have been contacted for comment.
