A group accused of orchestrating the UK's biggest 'cash for crash' scam has been appearing at Cwmbran Magistrates' Court this morning.
86 people accused of a range of offences, including conspiracy to defraud, are due to appear during the course of the day.
Appearing in groups of 1 to 5 people, the defendants spoke only to confirm their names and dates of birth.
The Magistrate granted bail, and the group will appear at Newport Crown Court between November 4th and 6th.
