A fraudster who used her Kettering employer's credit card for personal purchases has been told she must pay back ill-gotten gains of £10,000.

Louise Pettit, 36, was the human resources manager at parking firm Total Parking Solutions and had an allocated business credit card as a trusted employee.

But while working at the firm, who are based in Kings Court in Kettering Venture Park, she abused her position by using the card to make numerous unauthorised purchases for her own personal gain in 2019.
