Two men from the travelling community have been jailed after admitting trying to defraud two pensioners out of nearly 80 thousand pounds.
Steven Wood and Ryan Lowe told elderly victims in North Yorkshire that they needed repairs to be done on their homes and gardens.
No significant work was ever carried out - yet the pair took thousands in payment from the victims.
An 87-year-old man paid the men over £72,000 and another 84-year-old woman gave £6000 to them. Both victims suffered from severe dementia.
Wood was jailed for 4 and a half years and Lowe was given a three year sentence.
