THE manager of an after-school club has been struck off after embezzling thousands of pounds.

Andrena McCue took the cash from the Squids day care centre in South Queensferry

The 45-year-old was convicted at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in March last year, given a community payback order and ordered to do 140 hours of unpaid work.

Now the Scottish Social Services Council, which regulates children’s day care workers, has barred her from the profession. It said McCue had never explained her actions and had “exploited” colleagues.
