Court graphic
A man from Northamptonshire who ran a home-working scam is due to be sentenced on Monday.

Neil Jeans, from Corby, who traded under the name Aquamass UK, has been convicted of eight charges of obtaining money by deception.

He was prosecuted by Northamptonshire's trading standards department - after they received numerous complaints about misleading adverts across the Eastern region.

Jeans ran Aquamass UK from addresses in Spinney Road at Weldon and Canada Square in Corby.

He is due to be sentenced at Leicester Crown Court.
