Jail for tourist


An Australian tourist whose cash ran out yesterday began sampling Welsh hospitality of a different kind – in jail.

Karli Penberthy, 24, from Adelaide, had run up food and accommodation bills of nearly £1,300, magistrates heard.

She pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud involving two hotels, a bed and breakfast and a youth hostel and to stealing a bank card and purse.

She was jailed for 56 days.
