Man jailed over Sainsbury's Nectar point scam

A Sainsbury's IT worker who stole more than 17 million Nectar points from the firm has been jailed.

James Stevenson created false accounts to give himself the points under the shop's reward card system, the Old Bailey heard.

The illegally-obtained points would have been worth £81,000 to Stevenson, 45, from Muswell Hill, north London.

He was sentenced to 20 months in prison for fraud but will be released after 10 months on licence.

Nick Davis reports.
