A STOLEN TV has been recovered after it was taken from an 'extremely vulnerable' man.

Police officers were called to the incident in Blackburn earlier today.

The victim had invited the thief and his girlfriend to stay with him for a couple days after he saw them both shivering in Blackburn town centre, a police spokesman said.

Officers tracked the television down to a local second hand store and it was reunited with the 'very happy' owner.

A police spokesman said: "We would ask residents who have any vulnerable people living in their community to keep an eye on them where possible and report any suspicious activity to us and we will always check it out."
