Karen Fletcher (pictured left), a 43-year-old from Dunkinfield in Greater Manchester, has been jailed for stealing from her best friend in the weeks before her wedding. She had been friends with 55-year-old Beverly Meredith (pictured right), also from Dunkinfield, for 26 years, but that didn't stop her from ransacking the house in the days running up to the wedding - and stealing the couple's wedding rings.

And she's not the first to have taken advantage of a bride.
