POST Office workers are being urged to ensure they verify all details when cashing cheques.

The warning comes after a woman cashed seven cheques, each for £100, from two stolen cheque books.

She did so at Post Offices in Blagdon, Backwell, Langford, Churchill, Wrington, Congresbury and Yatton.

The woman, who has been filmed on CCTV wearing different wigs, also had the cheque guarantee cards to allow her to take the money out.
