The court further ordered her to complete 20 rehabilitation days and complete 150 hours of unpaid work.

Komunska, of Lovesey Avenue, Hucknall, claimed the money had been stolen to support her children during a period of financial hardship.

She later pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position.

She was given a two-year jail sentence suspended for 18 months, ordered to complete 20 rehabilitation days and complete 150 hours of unpaid work.
