A care worker accused of kidnap and fraud has appeared in court.

Magistrates were told Sarah Jones, 42, of Beech Close in Maltby, Rotherham, abused her position by intending to dishonestly gain over £34,000 from the person she cared for.

The offences are said to have happened in Leicester and Rotherham between September 2012 and April 2013.

Ms Jones, who appeared before Rotherham magistrates, is also charged with kidnap in Leicester in February 2013.

She was granted bail and is due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on 31 March.
