Employee steals from bath manufacturer

A wages clerk at family-run acrylic bath manufacturer Trojan Plastics stole £120,000 from the Huddersfield firm.
39-year-old Vicky Knott pleaded guilty Kirklees Magistrates’ Court to 12 charges of fraud by abuse of position.

She had worked for Huddersfield-based firm Trojan Plastics for 11 years and was a highly regarded member of staff, but stole tens of thousands of pounds over three years. The amounts she stole on different dates over three years ranged from £2,500 to over £14,000.

Knott will be sentenced at Leeds Crown Court this week.
