A woman has been jailed for five years after stealing £7,000 worth of laptops from St Helier Hospital.

Marcia Murray, 49, from Tarbert Road in East Dulwich, broke into a room at the hospital and stole a staff pass.

She then entered off limits areas of St Helier where she stole several laptops between August 28 and August 30.

A police spokesman said: "With Murray's arrest, charging, and sentencing, Sutton Police show they will not stand for this sort of crime that is calculated to target an institution set up to care for the sick and injured."

Murray was sentenced to five years for burglary at Croydon Crown Court on October 3.
