A TEENAGE girl has been banned from a Great Yarmouth store for 12-months for shoplifting.
Restorative justice was used to resolve the crime which happened at Boots on the Gapton Hall retail park.
A meeting took place between the 15-year-old, her mother, the store manager and local police community support officers Gemma George and Martin Chapman who patrols the retail park.
The girl removed security labels from some items and left the store without attempting to pay. She was stopped outside by staff and goods worth �24 were recovered.
