He was invited to talk about street pickpockets following yesterday’s news that playwright Alan Bennett had had his wallet, containing £1,500, stolen by pickpockets pretending to clean ice-cream from his coat.
During the interview, James answered questions from callers and gave advice about how to avoid falling victim to a street pickpocket. Then listeners heard Jeremy challenge James to steal something from him. After only a few moments of distracting talk, Jeremy discovered that ‘The Man of Steal’ had managed ‘borrow’ his credit card, iphone, car keys, a pen and his wallet!
If you missed it then you can listen to the interview on BBC iPlayer (available for 7 days.)
