    Mayfair phone thief: Damien Hirst shares video he claims shows ‘begger’ using distraction trick

    Art-ful dodger! Damien Hirst shares video he claims shows ‘begger’ using distraction trick to steal his mobile from table outside Mayfair restaurant

    • Damien Hirst was dining at a restaurant in Mayfair when his phone was taken
    • Claimed a boy who showed him a piece of paper took his mobile from the table
    • CCTV footage showed the moment the boy unfolded the paper on Wednesday 
    • Hirst said the boy used the paper to block his view of his phone before taking it 

    Artist Damien Hirst has shared a video showing the moment he thinks his phone was stolen by a boy pretending to be a beggar.

    Hirst, 55, was dining at a restaurant in Mayfair, London, when his mobile was taken by an alleged thief who distracted him with a piece of paper, he claimed. 

    The modern artist shared footage of the incident to his Instagram on Wednesday, but the incident is thought to have occured before the nationwide lockdown came into force on November 5.

    CCTV footage taken from outside the restaurant shows a young man approaching Hirst while he sits at his table.

    He begins to unfurl a piece of paper in his hands, shielding the device from Hirst’s view.

    One person viewing the CCTV footage can be heard saying: ‘F****** hell these kids are quick.’

    The video then cuts away to when the man has left, apparently with the mobile in his possession.

    Hirst, originally from Bristol, posted a photo of the young man and said: ‘Gotta be careful these days.

    ‘My phone got nicked off the table at Scott’s restaurant while I was having lunch by this young kid.
