The Clarkson's Farm star had an unwanted visitor at his farm shop recently

Jeremy Clarkson has shared a clip of CCTV footage from Diddly Squat farm shop of a man appearing to pocket items off the shelves.

The clip shows a bearded man, dressed in all-black and wearing a black cap taking a bottle of alcohol from the shelf and slipping it into his coat pocket.

As the clip unfolds, he's seen poaching another item from a basket before concealing it on his person.

Clarkson shared the video to his Instagram page where he didn't hold back in addressing the incident.

He wrote alongside the clip: "This man came 'shopping' at the farm shop. I would like to meet the cu."

It didn't take long for Clarkson's followers to react to the incident, including none other than his Diddly Squat righthand man and Clarkson's Farm co-star Kaleb Cooper.

Cooper took to the comments to seemingly condemn what he'd seen as he penned: "Such a shame."

The police have addressed the incident at Diddly Squat after confirming two men arrived and left in the same car at the time.

One stood at the till and bought £69 worth of products while the other man wearing the cap stole two bottles of alcohol and another unknown item.

The total value of the items stolen is thought to be worth around £80, according to Mail Online.

A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police told the publication that "both men then left the shop, got back in the vehicle and drove off in the direction of Burford."

The police have asked anyone with information to call 101 or make a report on its website quoting the reference number 43230353268.

Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via its website.

Earlier this week, Cooper was hit with a "problem" of his own as he took to Instagram to explain.

The young farmer revealed he's been struggling with his mowers on the farm all year, with many pieces of equipment breaking down on him.

Cooper said: "So I've had really bad mower problems this year...

"And I've had a mower break yesterday and we're demoing this set now," he added before showing the measures he'd had to stretch to.

Cooper flipped the camera around to show off an all-new Krone-branded piece of machinery he's had to bring onto the farm to ensure things keep running smoothly.

He also revealed last week that harvesting has officially begun amid tumultuous weather conditions.
