Carlisle Crown Court heard that between June 2010 and June 2018 he falsified daily cash management sheets allowing him to pocket up to £100,588 from the company.

McIntosh stole a further £6,650 from the business between January 2018 and May 2018 by falsifying records and failing to bank money on 12 occasions.

Detective constable Andrew Metcalf said: "This is a positive result for the owners of the premises, Mr McIntosh showed no remorse for his actions during the investigation.

“This result today provides the owners an opportunity to move forward with their lives, both personally and professionally. I am happy that Mr McIntosh has been held to account for his actions."
