A former actress living in a care home had to wear clothes from deceased residents after her friend stole £65,000 from her life savings.

Brian Malam had been granted power of attorney over Margaret Wright's finances after she was diagnosed with dementia, but spent years helping himself to cash.

Mrs Wright, who is better known by her stage name Meg Wynn Owen, starred in various well-known TV shows and films including Love Actually, Doctor Who, Under Milk Wood, Pride and Prejudice, and Upstairs Downstairs.

During his sentencing at Cardiff Crown Court, Judge Paul Hobson told Malam that he had not only abused the trust placed in him by virtue of the legal powers he had been granted, but had also "betrayed" his close friend of many years.
