A former soldier who defrauded Conwy Council out of 125 thousand pounds has been sentenced to three years in prison. Christopher O'Neill set up a charity for North Wales war veterans called Forces for Good.
But he spent money he obtained for the project on his own lavish lifestyle, and a gambling habit.
The judge in the case said he was astounded that the Welsh Government had approved the project without basic checks being carried out.
