An Illogan woman who stole over £300,000 to fund a luxury lifestyle has been jailed for four years.

Truro Crown Court previously heard how Helen Hart took £285,000 of it from her bosses and spent the money on a private jet, fast car and stayed in a castle.

Among the luxuries she spent money on were £5,990 for a return trip to Paris, £7,816 on a hotel stay in Devon, and £4,752 on tickets and hospitality for a Chelsea Premier League game.

Among the cars, a Porsche Boxster, Range Rover and a Mercedes.

The company's cash was also used to improve her home. She spent £2,000 on a new kitchen, dipped into it to pay off her rent and water bills and splashed £4,985 on bottles of wine.

It happened over six years, while the 45 year old worked as company secretary for Truro architectural and engineering firm, PDP Green Consulting.

But her deception only came to light when bosses were handed a winding up order.

Detectives were called in and eventually uncovered the theft.
