An accountant has been jailed for using her company's money on holiday as part of a £20,000 fraud spree.

Lynsay Railton, 45, of Boyatt Crescent, was working at Fairpay Construction Ltd when she conned the business out of almost £20,000.

She abused her position at the Basingstoke-based company to illegally gain a total of £19,942.10 between July 2021 and May 2022.

The court heard she made bank transfers from the company account to her Monzo account, used the company card to pay for fuel without permission, and even changed £200 for Euros on the company card when she went on holiday.

She was sentenced on June 13 at Winchester Crown Court to one year in custody after previously pleading guilty to one charge of fraud.
