The finance manager of the former regional film funding body in eastern England has been charged with theft.

Melvin Douglas Welton, 61, who worked for the Norwich and Watford-based Screen East, will appear before Norwich magistrates on 14 January 2011.

Mr Welton, of Great Yarmouth, faces five charges of theft - amounting to £7,500 - from Screen East between 2006 and 2010.

Screen East went into liquidation in October.
