Councillor who took neighbour's mail resigns from parish council
A councillor who was caught on camera taking her neighbour's mail directly from his postbox has "finally" resigned from her parish council role.
Joy Harbottle was videoed lifting letters out of her next door neighbour's external letter box just minutes after it was delivered by the postman.
Victim Michael Umphray had set up the CCTV when he realised a number of his letters had gone missing over a period of time.
Mr Umphray contacted police after the theft but did not press charges because his family still has to live next door to Mrs Harbottle.
