POCA: Woman who stole £70k from Colston Statue fundraisers ordered to repay just £1.

A woman who stole money from online fundraisers, set up after the toppling of Edward Colston's statue in Bristol four years ago, took around £70,000 in total, police say.

Now "penniless", a court has ordered Xahra Saleem to pay back a nominal amount of £1.

Police have obtained a Confiscation Order under the Proceeds of Crime Act against Saleem, who was jailed for two-and-a-half years last October after pleading guilty to one count of fraud.
