Davie Griffin, 24, of Bramford Road, Ipswich, appeared at the town’s Crown Court in August and admitted theft by an employee while working at Subway in Queen Street. He stole £8,240 between November 2011 and March last year.

He was given a 14-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to do 300 hours unpaid work. He was also given a 36-hour attendance centre order.

Griffin was called back in front of Judge Rupert Overbury, who sentenced him last year, and admitted breaching the suspended sentence order by failing to attend two appointments with the probation service in September and October.

Russell Butcher, prosecuting, said Griffin had completed 173 hours of the unpaid work requirement but had not completed any of the attendance centre hours. He said the probation service wanted the order revoked.

Judge Overbury told Griffin he warned him when he imposed the suspended sentence that any breach could see part or the whole of the sentence being activated.

Last year the court heard Griffin stole money by entering false amounts on the till and pocketing the balance. At the time he had a girlfriend and baby and some of the money was spent on nappies.

Suffolk has featured in various films and TV shows over the years – but often it is well hidden or shown only briefly.

Sir Bob Russell meets with Paul Geater.

A fortnight ago in my column I was discussing the importance (or not) of car parking prices in attracting visitors to a town for a shopping trip or general day out.

Hopes are rising that the park and ride service will be saved after talks between Suffolk County Council and the Ipswich Vision board.
