Bradford postmaster jailed for stamps scam

A Bradford sub postmaster “plundered” thousands of pounds from his employers in a postage stamp scam, a court heard yesterday.

Khayyam Ishaq had a considerable degree of responsibility at Birkenshaw Post Office, Bradford, and had breached a high degree of trust, Bradford Crown Court was told.

Jailing him for 54 weeks, Judge John Potter told him: “You were trusted with large sums of money, and stock, by your employer that you did choose to plunder over the period of this theft.”
