The former chief executive of a defunct child support charity in Peterborough has been cleared of stealing money from the organisation.

Alan Lord, 64, was accused of stealing £39,800 in the form of bonuses from Family Care between 2005 and 2011, and of stealing £11,084 in the form of holiday pay between 2006 and 2010. 

But he was found not guilty on both counts at Peterborough Crown Court on 7 November.

Stephen Hession, 52, the charity’s former finance director, was jailed for 28 months in April for stealing £76,819 from the charity.
