A woman employed by Cambridge University has admitted stealing more than £285,000 from a college.

Jacqueline Balaam, 41, from Fallowfield in Cambridge admitted stealing the money from Pembroke College.

Appearing at the city's crown court earlier, she pleaded guilty to two counts of fraud by abuse of position and one of false accounting.

As well as stealing from the college, she admitted taking more that £3,000 from Girton Social Club.

Balaam will be sentenced on 16 March.
