A former bank worker has been jailed for 18 months after HBOS customers had more than £100,000 illegally transferred from their accounts.

Kamran Khaliq, 20, of Rosevale View, Sowerby Bridge, was working in the savings department of the bank when he accessed personal details.

Bradford Crown Court heard was told in May last year the bank became aware of fraudulent transfers on 15 separate accounts.

Prosecutor Richard Smith said more than 30 accounts had been subject to attempted frauds with seven of them being successful.

The potential loss could have been more than £500,000, but just over £109,000 was obtained and the bank had reimbursed all the affected customers.
