Lotto fraudster sentenced

A shop assistant has received a 12 month suspended jail sentence after he tried to trick a customer out of his lottery winnings. Maidstone Crown Court heard that a syndicate member was left hunting through bags of rubbish for his ticket.

The shopkeeper told him he'd won just ten pounds, so he could pocket the money himself. David Johns reports, speaking to syndicate leader Callum Crosier.
