Michelle Roberts, a 45-year-old currently living in Bracondale Road, Abbey Wood, has been jailed for six months - for stealing from her own relatives at her uncle's funeral. She took bank cards, £80 in cash and £300 of John Lewis vouchers. She used the cards to spend more than £400 on online music.

The judge called it a 'mean and despicable crime' but she's not the first criminal to take advantage of a death.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
