A Danish woman has been convicted of stealing 117 million Danish kroner (£13m; $17m) of government funding. Britta Nielsen worked at Denmark’s social services board for 40 years, distributing funding to people in need. But in 2018 she was accused of siphoning money to her own pockets. A Copenhagen court sentenced her to six and half years in prison on Tuesday.
