CLACTON MP Douglas Carswell has gone further than calling on police to be tough on crime... by chasing and catching a suspected shoplifter himself.

Mr Carswell was in the town on Friday before his advice surgery at the Conservative Party office in Station Road when he spotted a suspected shoplifter shortly after 1.20pm.

The brave MP kept his Twitter followers updated on the situation.

He later tweeted that the suspect had been arrested.
