Leeds marketing agency Brass has said that the prosecution of an accounts clerk who stole over £230,000 over six years to fund her a gambling addiction has not affected it financial position.

Last week, Kay Fearnley, an accounts clerk with the agency since 2004, admitted eight charges of theft to fund her online gambling addiction.

The money was paid into her own bank account through false invoices over a six year period.

Fearnley was jailed for three years and nine months.

A spokesperson for Brass, told The Drum: “We can confirm that Kay Fearnley was an accounts clerk at Brass between 2002 and 2011, and has been found guilty by the Courts of an ongoing theft against the company during that time.

“The theft was reported to West Yorkshire Police as soon as it was discovered. This came as a complete shock to the business.

“We are satisfied that the case has now been resolved and would like to reiterate that in no way does this affect our current financial position, or any of our clients, and nor will it affect us adversely in the future.”
