Full Report: Two sentenced for fraud

Two men have been jailed after swindling two pensioners with advanced dementia out of almost £80,000.

Steven Wood and Ryan Lowe, members of the travelling community, told vulnerable elderly people in North Yorkshire that vital repairs were needed on their homes and gardens.

Trading standards officers found that the work was unnecessary - and that it had not actually been carried out.

Rachel Bullock was at today's sentencing.
