Investigating officer Pc Mark Smith said: “Seaton had denied this heartless crime and showed no remorse for his actions.

“Upon summing up the judge remarked how it was despicable to steal from a charity which cares for people with terminal illnesses.

“The fuel is also paid for through charity donations and voluntary work.
