Fresh Allegations Against TV Star

The popular actor and entertainer Roly Winthorpe has said that he deeply regrets his behaviour after allegations came to light that he was an armed robber in the seventies and eighties. Mr Winthorpe, who had roles in Minder, Blake's Seven and Crossroads, and was a frequent guest on 3-2-1 and Fact Breakers, has been accused of holding up several small shops and post offices.

"Knocking off post offices was very much part of the culture in the seventies," said Mr Winthorpe's agent. "But of course, what was ok back then is not necessarily acceptable now. Roly grew up at a time when nicking stuff was part of everyday life and storming into a shop with a sawn-off shotgun was just considered high jinks. He now recognises that this behaviour was inappropriate. He is not that person anymore and is seeking help for his armed robbery habit."
