Jude Durr, for Hall, said she thought she was taking over as manager of the Downham Market store and had moved her family from Norfolk to Lincolnshire only to find she was asked to work at Aylsham.
"She was acting as a relief manager but was not being paid for that"

He said: "There were no grand gestures."
He said that she had repaid some of the cash.
