The ringleader of a coin-forging scam has failed in his bid to appeal against his sentence during the first proceedings to be broadcast from the Court of Appeal.
Kevin Fisher, from Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire, was jailed in May for seven years for his role in what is believed to be the largest ever plot to make fake pound coins in the UK.
Filmed after a near 90-year ban on allowing cameras in court was lifted, Lord Justice Pitchford refused Fisher's application to appeal against his sentence after hearing submissions from the appellant's barrister - and Prime Minister's brother - Alex Cameron QC.
