According to The Leader, a team leader at M&S Bank has been jailed for two years after she admitted stealing more than £30,000 from her employers to pay her rent.

Erica Langford, 32, used her employees’ pass codes to pay fictitious refunds into dormant customer accounts, and then authorised cash transfers to her oblivious landlord.

Bosses got wind of the fraud after four years and began a protracted investigation that left Langford’s staff feeling deeply anxious that they were under suspicion.

Judge Nicholas Woodward, prosecuting,  said: “The motivation was entirely financial and frankly it was greed.

“Suspicion fell on a number of other employees. They were people you were directly responsible for. The impact on all of these persons was going to be serious.”
