October 21, 2016 | by | 0 Comments
This is the shocking moment a woman brings an iced lolly to her neighbour with dementia - before stealing cash from her purse and stuffing it inside her bra. See NTI story NTITHIEF.  Amanda Donnelly, 55, pretended to be a good neighbour to Patricia Bent, 76, but abused the pensioner's trust to steal from her on four different occasions.  Mrs Bent's son Mark, 54, became suspicious after cash he gave to his mum each day for groceries started disappearing so he set up a secret camera hidden in a pill box.  Days later he caught Donnelly entering the back door of Mrs Bent's home in Syston, Leicester, with two strawberry lollipops.  After sitting down at the table, Donnelly is seen reaching into the pensioner's bag and rifling through it while she casually chats to Mrs Bent.  Moments later Mrs Bent leaves the room to answer the phone and Donnelly is seen stuffing the notes into her bra.  Donnelly, who lives opposite Mrs Bent's bungalow, then tells the pensioner she will see her the next day before leaving.  On Thursday (20/10) Donnelly admitted stealing a total of £70 from Mrs Bent on four different days when she appeared at Leicester Magistrates' Court.

Woman’s life SAVED thanks to painful gallstones

October 21, 2016 | by | 0 Comments
Hannah Humphrey and boyfriend Matt Debnam. A 25-year-old woman’s life was saved when she lost five stone and ended up with painful gallstones - which turned out to be hiding a rare cancerous TUMOUR. See SWNS story SWTUMOUR. Hannah Humphrey dropped from a size 18 to a size eight in 18 months after years of fat jibes by playground bullies. Formerly 17-and-a-half stone, she was over the moon with her new slender frame. But shedding the pounds so quickly left her in excruciating pain - which turned out to be caused by hundreds of GALLSTONES. Surgeons carried out a routine op to remove her gallbladder in early January and told Hannah that everything would be OK.
