Fraudster to pay £125,000 to victim

The owner of a Romford-based mini-cab company, who persuaded an 81-year-old man to invest his life savings in his enterprise, has been ordered to pay £125,850 to the victim.

The activities of Paul Trower, 63 of Harold Hill in Romford, were brought to the attention of the Met's Safer Transport Command in 2011.
