MARKLEW: OFFICE MANAGER SPARED JAIL OVER £9,000 THEFTS

BALHAM; TUNBRIDGE WELLS An office manager at an investment firm who stole nearly £9,000 to top up her wages was spared jail today (MON) because she is suffering from post-natal depression. Victoria Marklew, 42, used the company debit card for AE Capital Advisers Ltd to make 59 cash withdrawals over an eight month period. She also used the card to splash out £75 on Amazon, rack up £100 in taxi fares and buy £361 in Polish currency. Marklew forged invoices and petty cash reconciliations to cover up the thefts before she was sacked in July 2012 after irregularities were spotted in the accounts.

PHARO:COPS UNAWARE OF SUN LEAKS DURING SOHAM INVESTIGATION

SOHAM, CAMBRIDGESHIRE; BRENTWOOD, ESSEX; WAPPING, EAST LONDON; WINDSOR, BERKS Senior detectives who investigated the Soham murders of schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman were unaware of any leaks to The Sun from inside the massive police operation, a court heard today (mon). DCI Chris Stevenson, the lead investigator, and spokesman Detective Superintendent Andy Hebb both said they had not noticed unauthorised material in the press during the 2002 inquiry.

But the officers said the police probe was so wide, including several different police forces, that they struggled to contain the flow of information to the press.
