Parish clerk uses £28,000 of council funds to settle debts

A parish council clerk helped herself to £28,000 of taxpayers money when she plunged into debt and took out a number of pay-day loans, a jury heard today.

Lynne Turner, 50, is accused of regularly transferring money from the parish council’s bank account into her own after she amassed £90,000 of debt and then took out loans from Wonga.com.

Turner, of High Wycombe, worked at Hughenden Parish Council in Buckinghamshire for 17 years before quitting in September 2011.
