A Harleston woman has been jailed after stealing more than £12,000 from a charity shop in the town.

Jane Marsh, 55, of The Common, had been charged with the theft of a credit balance to the value of £12,202.93 from the Bullock Fair Charity Shop in Harleston.

The thefts took place between July 1, 2012, and August 21, 2015.

She was sentenced to six months in prison following a trial at Norwich Crown Court.

The charity shop was established in 1999 and last year hit the £1.5m fundraising milestone.

It supports three main charities - the East Anglian Air Ambulance, All Hallows Hospital, and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
