Builders merchant fined for lorry scam

A former director of a builders merchant has been fined for his part in a scam using bogus licences for heavy goods vehicles.
Mohan Singh Bambra, a director of Iver Builders Merchants, was found guilty of five counts of using a fake licence with intent to deceive and fined £25,000.

The two men running the fraud, John Plummeridge and Philip Cameron, were found guilty of running a criminal network organising fake applications for large vehicle licences.

The scam came to light after police began investigating a large number of badly maintained vehicles on the roads and discovered discrepancies with the licences.

Plummeridge and Cameron were arrested last year and will be sentenced next month.
