Lowlife crooks swipe 5-year-old Harry's honesty stall.

Byline: JACK EVANS

A FIVE-year-old Midland schoolboy was left in floods of tears after heartless thieves stole the entire contents of his honesty stall which he runs from his parents' glamping site.

Little Harry Clare sells eggs and goats' milk as well as soap and lip balm from a table top based outside the site near Rosebud Meadow in Malvern.

Each morning he goes to restock before school and retrieve any takings which have been left inside the honesty box placed next to a price list for his products. But when the youngster went to check his stall on Tuesday callous crooks had stolen all of his stock.

Harry has since received hundreds of messages of support and offers of donations from wellwishers across the globe while police have been called to investigate.

Although Harry was left heartbroken, he says the cowardly actions of the shameless thieves have not deterred him from becoming a shopkeeper when he grows up.

He said: "I lost my shop and feel really sad. I liked making people happy."

Mum Rosie Clare, 35, said members of the public had offered to replace Harry's lost stock and the family had received offers of donations from as far away as New York. He sells six eggs for PS1.50, his mother's homemade lip balm for PS2.50 and soap for PS2 each or three for PS5. In total, PS40 of stock was taken by the lowlife crooks.

Rosie, of Malvern, said: "The shop is his pride and joy. He is really proud of it. He still wants to be a shopkeeper and I put a few things back out for him."
