He now faces a total of seven offences.

A police spokesman said Fleet is charged with stealing a betting slip to the value of £59.21 contrary to Section 1 of the Theft Act between July 30 and August 2 in Old Torquay Road, Paignton.

He was suspended on full pay until the time of his resignation.

What's to expose? He's been found guilty and will be punished. And so he bloody well should be.

Shirley his prosecution demonstrates that the "system" is not untouchable?

Thanks for sharing the good news with us. :-)
