Police back canoe fraud terms

The lengthy jail terms handed down to a man and a wife who faked his death in a canoe accident reflect the severity of the crime, police have said.

Anne Darwin and her husband John both received sentences in excess of six years for the 250,000 fraud.

Detective Inspector Andy Greenwood gave his reaction outside Teesside Crown Court.
