From Blackburn :
A 33-YEAR-OLD addict stole his terminally ill mum's TV set after she refused to lend him money for drugs.
And a court heard the son, registered as his mother's carer, used her electric wheelchair to remove the 32 inch TV which he sold for £40.
Brian Aspin, 33, of Sunnybank Gardens, Blackburn, pleaded guilty at Blackburn magistrates to theft of a TV worth £500.
"When she realised what had happened she was very upset."
Thanks Gavin for the link.
