WATCH:  'Little Britain' shoplifter stands up from wheelchair to steal food
The characters of Andy and Lou from the hit comedy sketch show 'Little Britain'

Remember Andy and Lou from Little Britain? Police in Coventry are seeking two shoplifters who seem to have taken their cue from the cult television comedy duo.

In the style of Andy “I want that one” Pipkin – a character who feigns disability – a woman in a wheelchair has been caught on CCTV getting out of her seat and walking completely unaided around the store, in order to select goods from the shelves and conceal them under her coat.

Between them, the pair managed to get away with around £60 worth of packaged meat during their spree, which happened at around 5pm on 11 January.
