A shop owner gets recompense.
The owner of an Indian food store in Bristol has received an apology letter and £100 from a former drug addict who stole cigarettes from the shop in 2001.
It begins: "Dear Sirs, I am writing this letter to make amends to you for something I have done in the past."
"At that time I was heavily using drugs and my life was in a mess, now I no longer use drugs and I strive to lead a decent and honest life. "
"As part of my ongoing recovery I try to put right all of the wrongs I have done in the past, at least where I can, and this is why I am giving you back the money which I stole from you. "
"I regret the harm I caused you in the past and I sincerely apologise to you for it."
