As reported on the Chronicle Live website, a sea cadets volunteer in Northumberland stole a number of kayaks, sails, wetsuits and musical instruments from the organisation and sold them on eBay.

Paul Erskine had got into financial difficulties, and went to steal items worth over £3,000 from the cadets and a neighbouring sports club, which he listed on the online auction site to raise money.

He was given six months prison, suspended for 12 months and must pay £250 compensation to the cadets and £350 to the sports club.
