Canoe fraudster John Darwin has been ordered to pay £40,000 to the authorities after two pensions matured.

A Proceeds of Crime Act hearing at Teesside Crown Court heard he had so far only paid back £121 of the £679,073 he was found to have benefitted from after faking his own death. Darwin, from Seaton Carew near Hatlepool, did not challenge the application by the Crown.
