11 guilty in crash-for-cash scam

A gang of fraudsters have been found guilty of a series of "crash for cash" scams worth more than half a million pounds.

A major police investigation began after they staged a bus crash in the Burngreave area of Sheffield two years ago. Detectives eventually linked them to 10 more incidents in Sheffield, Rotherham and Halifax.
