Pensioner catches care worker stealing cash from her purse  on a camera, she installed to find out why her money kept disappearing. The Secret camera showed Nadia Summers, 24, stashing money in her bra. Housebound Lynette Nardone, 64, was convinced she was being robbed.

The family installed £1,000 CCTV system used to convict care worker thief. Mrs. Lynette Nardone is house bound and suffers from a rare debilitating neuro-degenerative disease. Nadia was then caught on camera a further two times stealing £20 notes from the vulnerable patient's purse.

In court Mrs. Lynette reports the following: She said: 'Nadia's actions have cost me so much more than just £60 from my purse or £1,000 for cameras.

'She has taken away what little trust and faith I had left. It has been hard for me to accept that I need help and allowing strangers into my home as carers have been yet another challenge.

'I felt helpless to accuse the people who care for me, fearing a 'my word against theirs' situation.

'I was frightened to upset them in case they took it out on me. I depend on people.

'I hope Nadia can never again cause any other vulnerable person the distress and heartache that she has caused me.

'Nobody deserves to feel like a victim in their own home at a time when what they need and deserve the most is support and care and dignity.
