The charity was worried that the thieves wanted to pose as charity collectors, but Nimod Odedra, the supermarket manager, said the theft had been a prank by local youths who were known to him.

"I found out who had done it and I told them to make sure the costumes were returned by the end of the day otherwise I would tell the police," said Odedra. "It was the best I could do."
