Just days later it was discovered that 20-year-old Green had also used a customer's store card details to put £50 credit on her mobile phone, and buy nearly £200 worth of items.

Green, of Elizabeth Terrace, Wisbech, admitted fraud, by retaining and using Glenda Friend's store card details to buy £252.81 worth of goods on August 29. She was cautioned for the other offence.

"She was claiming income support and working just three hours a week, her income was £46.44 a week," solicitor John Clarke told Fenland magistrates. "The temptation was too much."
