A tour bus employee who stole thousands of pounds from the company he worked for will be sentenced at Southwark Crown Court this morning.

Muzzafar Ali, 28, of Ripple Road, Barking, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court earlier this year charged with stealing £11,480 from the Big Bus tour firm.

Although he gave no indication as to which way he would plead at the time, he later pleaded guilty to one count of theft by employee and could be set to face a period of time behind bars following the hearing.
