Christmas savings club thief Joanne Jones jailed

A mother-of-four who stole nearly £8,000 from a Christmas savings club in south Wales has been jailed for 18 months.

Joanne Jones, 36, admitted taking £7,734.90 from 19 people in Treharris at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.

Jones, now living in Brixham, Devon, was a Park Group representative and had been collecting regular payments since January 2013.

The judge called her behaviour a "disgraceful breach of trust".
