A FORMER cafe manager who stole more than £16,596 from the Oxfordshire Museum must repay £11,702.44.

Helen Seacole, 52 of Woodstock Road, Witney, admitted theft from the museum in Woodstock last August and was sentenced to eight months in jail, suspended for 18 months, and ordered to pay £16,596 compensation.

She has now paid about £5,000 and at yesterday’s confiscation hearing at Oxford Crown Court she was told to pay back the remaining money over six months.
