A woman who worked at a Kettering parking firm has admitted swindling her employers out of thousands of pounds.

Louise Pettit, 36, was the human resources manager at Total Parking Solutions, who are based in Kings Court in Kettering Venture Park.

As a trusted employee she had an allocated business credit card - but she used it to make numerous unauthorised purchases for her own personal gain in 2019.

This month at Northampton Magistrates' Court Pettit, of Dumble Close in Corby, admitted fraud by dishonestly abusing her position, intending to make a gain of £10,157.01.

Magistrates granted her unconditional bail so a pre-sentence report could be completed.

Pettit will be sentenced in June.

Total Parking Solutions has been contacted for comment.
