JOHN Morgan, a Conservative councillor on the Vale of White Horse District Council, has been convicted today of stealing £154,000 from a 91-year-old woman.

The councillor from Wantage had been on trial for the theft, which was alleged to have been carried out between March 2005 and January 2012.

He admitted withdrawing the money from Beryl Gittens’ account, but had told a jury at Oxford Crown Court he was following “her wishes”.

But a jury has today found him guilty of theft.
