A paramedic was caught on camera stealing £60 from a 94-year-old woman’s home just moments after she died.

CCTV footage captured the moment Mark Titley took and pocketed money in the deceased’s home in Shrewsbury - before he realised he was being filmed and put it back.

However, the victim’s son later saw what had transpired and said he felt 'sick to his stomach'.

Titley, 58, and three other medics were called out to the woman’s home on June 29 last year after reports she had collapsed in the garden. She was pronounced dead at the scene after they tried to resuscitate her for around 20 minutes.

Shrewsbury Crown Court was told Titley then entered the home in search of a ‘do not resuscitate’ form, but was filmed going through the cash and counting notes.

The court was told he looked around and spotted the camera before immediately putting the money back.

The woman’s son saw the camera footage and reported it to West Mercia Police.

Titley initially denied the allegation and told officers his intention was to ‘secure’ the cash for the family members - but he later admitted to theft.

The court heard that Titley is no longer a serving paramedic, he retired from West Midlands Ambulance Service days after the incident.

He was given an 18-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, was ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work and pay £530 costs and a £187 victim surcharge.
