A couple have been charged over the theft of electrical goods from the children’s cancer unit at Leeds General Infirmary.

Matthew Ingham, aged 37, of Hardwick Street, Keighley, has been charged with five counts of theft.

Kim Ager, aged 34, of the same address, has been charged with receiving stolen goods.

The charges relate to the theft of laptop computers and other items from the pavilion, which is operated by the charity Candlelighters and is next to the children’s cancer ward, in July.

They are due to appear at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, November 18.

Business Against Crime in Leeds (BACIL) donated six tablet computers to the two children’s cancer wards last month following an approach from officers at the City neighbourhood policing team who investigated the offences.
