We haven’t had a “200weeks Scum of the Week Award” for a while, so here is the latest inductee into the Hall of Fame.
Step forward one Ben Henley, a 24-year-old from Manchester, who has just been jailed for three months for stealing a mobile phone.
Nothing particularly scummy in that, you might think, until you realise that his victim was a 22-year-old girl who had jumped from a multiple-storey car park.
As the woman lay dying and while someone else was trying to help her, Henley helped himself to her mobile phone.
The victim died, but that was OK because Henley got Ã‚Â£30 for the phone when he sold it.
DS Mark Astbury of Greater Manchester Police said: “To steal from a dying woman instead of offering assistance or comfort is unforgivable.”
