'I watched my business being burgled from home on CCTV’

A businessman in the West Midlands watched his firm being burgled at home on CCTV, after being told by the police that they could not attend until the next day.

Paul Smart, who saw the £20,000 theft as it took place, told Radio 5 lives Daily's Sam Walker about his horror when he got the call that he was getting burgled at 3am.

"I went to 101 and they said the police were very busy and that they've had a stabbing. Sorry nobody is coming out to you."
