A prolific gambler stole more than £100,000 from the savings of an elderly resident at his care home to fund his addiction.

Imran Ahmed was jailed for three years at Nottingham Crown Court today after admitting stealing the money from a current account belonging to Audrey Green, a resident in her 70s at the Lilac House Care Home in Beeston, Nottingham, which he managed.

Ahmed, 39, used the money to fund “a double life” of gambling, the court heard.
