'I'm so glad it's over' carer dragged to court over theft accusations speaks of joy as case dropped
A carer accused of theft has spoken of her relief as the case against her is dropped.
Mum-of-two Zeba Begum, 42, from Newcastle’s West End, says she loved her job, offering personal care and cleaning to elderly people across the city.
