Gwent Police says 86 people have been charged in relation to an alleged 'crash for cash' scam operating out of a garage in Pengam, Blackwood, in the South Wales Valleys.
They are due to appear at Cwmbran Magistrates Court on 10 October.
A team of officers and detectives have been investigating this sophisticated ‘crash for cash scheme’ alongside the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) for more than two years, and this has led to the arrest and charge of these 86 individuals.
