Man jailed after stealing funds from pre-school

The Bristol Evening Post reports that a Bradley Stoke man has been given a 14 month jail sentence for stealing funds from a local pre-school.

Andrew Sheppard, of Chequers Court, stole more than £12,000 from Flying Start Pre-School, which was based at the Community Pavilion on Patchway Common.

Bristol Crown Court heard that the money was used to settle gambling debts and as part payment on a car.

The pre-school has since changed its name and appointed a new committee.
