Rachael Martin admitted stealing £46,000 from Barclays Bank

A bank clerk dreaming to be a model stole £46,000 from her employers — before blowing it on boob jobs, dental work, liposuction, hair extensions and make-up.

Rachael Martin, 24, enjoyed wild spending sprees and splashed out on extravagant nights out.

The young mum lavished £4,000 on breast surgery and a further £1,700 on teeth-whitening treatment and other expensive dental work.

She pilfered the money from Barclays over eight weeks in amounts of £1,000 or £2,000 a time, squirrelling funds into her own account.

On one occasion, Martin managed to swipe £6,000 from the coffers in one go.

By the time cops nicked her, she had spent it all.

Martin, who faces jail, yesterday admitted theft at Truro Crown Court, Cornwall.

She was working at the bank in Liskeard when she began sidelining funds.

Initially she was charged with 25 separate counts of theft, between September 1 and October 3 2010.

Prosecutors shrunk the counts to just one charge covering the same amount of money and dates.

Recorder Jeremy Wright released her on unconditional bail and will sentence her in September.
