A woman has been charged with fraud after £115,000 went missing from a will.

Andrea Garrick, 54, of Main Road, Icklesham, will appear at Hastings Magistrates Court on August 6 for fraud and money laundering.

It is alleged Garrick took the money which had been left to a Hastings charity in the will of a 70-year old Pevensey woman.

The charges, authorised by the Crown Prosecution Service, follow an investigation by detectives from Hastings CID.
