A VIDEO shows what looks like a hospice charity collection box being stolen in a Coventry newsagent’s.

Myton Hospices charity is appealing for more information after a man was seen on CCTV footage appearing to steal one of its collection boxes.

The incident took place at Wallace News, Wallace Road and the video has been posted on Facebook by the charity.
