FRAUDSTER William Byrne has been ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid work.

The 31-year-old, of Rodney Close, Gosport, admitted three thefts of Paypoint receipts at Co-op in Lee-on-the-Solent in September and October last year.

He also admitted a £563 fraud by using someone else’s debit card to get credits for himself.

Fareham magistrates handed him a community order and 250 hours unpaid work.

He must pay £94 compensation.
