A BANK call centre worker stole nearly £1,000 from a customer’s account after jotting down his password.

Laurence Donkin was fielding an inquiry while at work as a Barclays Bank telephone advisor, at Sunderland’s Doxford International Business Park, when he was given the password by the customer.

The 30-year-old later used that information to withdraw £977 while posing as the account holder over the telephone.
