A MAN and a woman have appeared in court accused of stealing laptops and other electrical equipment from a children’s cancer ward at Leeds General Infirmary.

Matthew Ingham, 37, pleaded not guilty to four counts of theft and his ex-partner Kim Ager, 34, pleaded not guilty to one count of receiving stolen goods.

Leeds Magistrates Court heard that Ingham, from Hardwick Street, Keighley, is accused of stealing three Toshiba laptops worth £599 each and some HD Livestreaming equipment worth £874.25 in July this year.

Kim Ager, 34, of Blackthorn Road, Ilkley, is charged with receiving the stolen goods, worth a total of more than £3,000.

Both defendants spoke only to confirm their names and addresses during the short ten minute hearing.

A trial date was set for February 2, when they will return to the magistrates’ court.

Both Mr Ingham and Miss Ager were given unconditional bail.
