A Halifax couple who enjoyed a millionaire lifestyle using money stolen from a Ripponden-based laundry company have been jailed after a judge described the offending as “an orgy of greed and self-indulgence”.

Over a seven-year period accounts department worker Julie Nickerson stole £2.3 million from her employers JLA Limited and used the money to pay for luxury holidays, expensive cars and improvements to the £500,000 house she bought with her ex-newsagent husband Anthony.

Bradford Crown Court heard today (Friday) how the couple’s extravagant spending included nearly £200,000 on foreign holidays and cruises, more than £10,000 on motorsport events at Silverstone and just under £17,000 on film memorabilia.
