Hospital cleaner charged with theft

A hospital cleaner has been charged for the theft of £325 worth of medical and cleaning supplies from St Bernard’s Hospital.

Ana Gingell, 53, of Rosia Dale, works as an employee with the GHA in the domestic operative department.

In a statement, the Royal Gibraltar Police said it recovered "a substantial" amount of good from her house and her car which they suspect were stolen.

Ms Gingell was taken to New Mole House and interviewed under caution before being charged with one count of theft.

She appeared before the Magistrates' Court this morning where she pleaded not guilty to one count of theft.

Ms Gingell has been bailed out and the case was adjourned for May 19.
