Former Commonwealth boxing champ Nicky Booth punched Waitrose security guard who caught him stealing coffee

A boxing champion who once fought for a world title has appeared in court after he lashed out at a security guard who caught him stealing tins of coffee worth just 16. Nicky Booth was ordered to pay 100 compensation to the guard who had caught him stealing from Waitrose in Milton Street, Nottingham city centre. Booth, 37, once held the Commonwealth and British boxing1 titles as a bantamweight.

He even challenged for the IBO world title in 2001, but was stopped in seven rounds by Jose Sanjuanelo at Wembley Conference Centre.

On May 4 this year Booth, who lives in Hucknall, visited Nottingham after staying with relatives and going ‘cold turkey’ in a bid to beat drugs. He went to the Waitrose store and stole three tins of coffee worth 15.66, said Lee Shepherd, prosecuting at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court3 on Wednesday November 8.

Booth then returned to the store later that day and tried to get away with four tins of coffee worth 16.72, but was spotted. Mr Shepherd said: “The security guard tried to detain him and he was punched to the jaw . After being arrested, Mr Booth was apologetic for his actions.”

Defence solicitor Chris Saunders told the court: “He comes across as a frail character nowadays . You can see he has trouble getting his words out correctly.

“You have seen he is almost shuffling when he comes into court .

He has been out of trouble for ten years and the problem is Class A drugs . When I spoke to him, he said ‘I need some help.’

“At the moment, he has various illnesses . His immune system is currently attacking his antibodies.”

When the assault took place, Booth was with a former partner who was pregnant.
Mr Saunders added: “It was in effect a warning strike.”

Booth, of Burberry Avenue, Hucknall4, admitted assault and twice stealing coffee from the Waitrose store.

He must pay 85 prosecution costs, an identical amount as a government tax, and 15.66 to Waitrose, on top of the compensation. He must also complete a six-month drug rehabilitation course.

Deputy District Judge Richard Marshall told him: “You have been out of trouble for some time but you have obviously got yourself into trouble with drugs.”

In 2003 Booth lost a WBU title fight at Harvey Hadden Stadium against Nathan Sting, and never boxed professionally again. He retired with a record of 17 wins from 23 fights, but was later jailed for drug offences.

Terror fears will see large security barrier installed at York Minster

Terror fears have led to a security barrier to be installed outside one of the north s most recognisable landmarks.

A protective barrier made up of 12 security blocks will be put up in front of York Minster this week on advice of the Counter Terrorism1 Unit. Popular with Teessiders, especially for shopping trips and pub crawls in the run up to Christmas, York is one of the most popular tourism hotspots in the north. But in light of the horrific attacks on Manchester and London, the cathedral s governing body the Chapter of York has taken the decision to up security.

The Dean of York, the Very Reverend Dr Vivienne Faull said: The national terror threat level has been at severe for many months and is likely to remain so for some time to come.

Some experts within the UK s security community believe that we are facing a generational problem which may last for 20 or 30 years.

The appalling attacks in Manchester and London earlier this year have required all those responsible for the security of nationally important buildings, monuments and public spaces to reassess, review and constantly refine their arrangements for keeping people safe.

Chapter has been concerned about the potential vulnerability of the area around the Minster s West End for some time.

York Minster

The clear recommendation from the Counter Terrorism Unit required urgent and decisive action and will form a visible deterrent at the front of the Minster .

We have a clear duty of care to everyone who visits York Minster and we will do everything we can to ensure that our worshippers and visitors feel safe and secure when they are here, Rev d Dr Faull continued.

Approved by the Home Office and tested by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the 12 blocks will form a substantial barrier . New flag stones will be cut and set around the edges of each block . No archaeology will be disturbed by the installation.

The blocks are already in use at a number of high profile locations around the country including the Tower of London.

The security barrier is a temporary measure: the blocks can and will be removed if the security situation improves in the future.
