Cleaner is caught taking pensioner's savings on CCTV

A thieving cleaner was caught on hidden camera helping herself to an 86-year-old's savings.

Patricia Moore, 86, from Swansea, noticed cash disappearing after she hid her money in a microwave for safe-keeping.

Wanting proof of the theft, she asked one of her sons to install a hidden CCTV camera in her kitchen and captured cleaner Janet Fillis, 64, helping herself to money.
