According to the Travel Weekly website, a Thomas Cook employee has been jailed for nearly five years for defrauding the travel firm – and a previous employer – out of more than £60,000.

Angelika Schell treated herself to lunches, flights abroad, and taxis rides to work with her company credit card, stealing £37,000 over two years.

Schell was spared prison in October 2014 for stealing £26,000 from green energy firm, the Brook Henderson Group, where she was PA to the chief executive but hid this conviction from Thomas Cook and seamlessly moved on to her next scam, even abusing the company credit card to pay off £1,300 of court fines.
