A bank clerk who went on the run after being found guilty of fleecing £120,000 from two elderly customers was found dead this morning (Wednesday).

Bindi Dhanji, of North Circular Road, Neasden, absconded hours before she was due to be sentenced for theft at Southwark Crown Court yesterday.

The bodies of the 32-year-old and her husband were found hanging of a footbridge at Staples Corner near their home at 6.35am.

During her trial, the court heard, Dhanji stole £60,000 from one customer's account between 2005 and 2008 after she learnt the elderly lady had moved to France to be with her family due to ill health.

During that period she had gained the trust of another customer in her 80s and was also siphoning money totalling £60,000 from her account.

A Brent Police spokeswoman confirmed the bodies of a man and woman were found at Staples Corner this morning under non-suspicious circumstances.
