A carer stole thousands of pounds worth of jewellery from a grandmother-of-three who has Alzheimer’s disease.

Craig Smith was caught after he sold 85-year-old Sylvia Scott’s engagement ring and other sentimental items to a pawnbroker.

Smith, 52, was first employed as Mrs Scott’s carer in July 2012 and regularly visited her home in Park Avenue, Lancaster.
