Thief gets away with full tank of fuel at Tesco petrol station in Goodmayes

A driver got away with a full tank of stolen fuel at Goodmayes Tesco on Friday, scraping customers’ cars as he sped away.

A witness said the man driving a silver Passat “shook the vehicle” to fit in the last drop of diesel before driving off without paying.

Number plates had been taken off the car.

A Redbridge Police spokesman said they were investing the theft at the supermarket filling station in High Road, Goodmayes, at 4.50pm.
