A serial shoplifter has been banned from entering the centre of Cheltenham.

Thelma Lawrence, 20, of Monkscroft, is not permitted to enter the town's main shopping area for two years under an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo).

Gloucestershire Police said she had been banned from over 70 shops "but this has failed to stop her offending".

Police have asked for anyone who sees her in Cheltenham Town Centre, Kingsditch Retail Park or Centrum Retail Park to contact them.
