Holiday park embezzler ordered to pay £32,000 compensation

A holiday park sales manager who embezzled his former employer has been ordered to pay £32,000 compensation.

Paul McKinstray, 45, committed the offence while working for the Thurston Manor Holiday Park in East Lothian.

He admitted taking £41,000 between April 2007 and January 2008, while employed as a sales manager for Dunham Leisure Ltd.

McKinstray breached the terms of his original community sentence by failing to pay back the full amount.

Perth Sheriff Court heard that McKinstray, of Seaton Estate Holiday Village, Arbroath, had completed the unpaid work portion of his original community payback order but had a large amount of money outstanding.

Sheriff Michael Fletcher revoked the original court against McKinstray and ordered him to pay £32,000 compensation to his former employer.
