A civil servant who was jailed for stealing almost £98,000 from her workplace has been told she must pay the money back out of her pension.

49-year-old Katrina Surridge was sent to prison for two years in October after pleading guilty to theft, false accounting and falsifying records.

Between December 2014 and July this year the corporate service manager stole cash and cheques from the Isle of Man Courts of Justice.

At a proceeds of crime hearing at Douglas Courthouse last week a confiscation order was made ordering her to pay back almost £85,000.

Surridge has been given three months to pay - if she misses the deadline she will serve a further 18 months in prison in default.
