Man charged in connection with Bradley charity box theft

A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a charity box intending to raise money for five-year-old cancer sufferer Bradley Lowery.

It was taken from The Lunch Box cafe in Peterlee.

Stephen Whitworth, 35, of Great North Road, Chester-le-Street will appear before Newton Aycliffe magistrates this afternoon charged with theft.

On Monday, Durham Police tweeted a picture of coins in a bag and the message: "Got your money back mate, keep fighting buddy".

The money collected was going towards the Bradley Lowery Foundation, which was set up to help the five-year-old Sunderland fan, who has neuroblastoma.

The force said the arrest came as a result of information from members of the public.
