The disturbing video lasts over a minute and shows 30-year-old Dignum looking nervously for signs of anyone coming as she bends down and rifles through a drawer.

She is filmed leaving the bedroom empty-handed before returning seconds later.

Dignum can then be heard unzipping a wallet belonging to Frank before taking out a £10 note which she stuffs into her pocket.
