An estate agent in London has been sacked after stealing a bar of galaxy chocolate from a client’s flat. The flat’s owner had bought security cameras for his new home and was testing them out when he discovered footage of the estate agent helping himself to some chocolate treats.

The agent claimed to have been suffering from dizziness and was desperate for some sugar when he happened upon the tempting galaxy bar. His employer did not buy his explanation and he was promptly sacked once they became aware of the theft.
