A senior member of Camden Council has been sacked after she was found to have misused a council credit card.

Head of business administration Ruth Anderson was removed from her post just over two weeks ago following an investigation by the council’s anti-fraud and investigation team, who discovered discrepancies in the use of a council credit card.

The amount in question was not thought to be more than £1,000.

A spokesman for Camden Council said: “We can confirm that a member of staff has recently been dismissed for gross misconduct relating to the improper use of a council purchase card.

“The matter was referred to our anti-fraud and investigation team to investigate and the appropriate action was taken.

“We are successfully recovering any monies misappropriated to ensure that there is no financial loss to taxpayers.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
