Man held over 'Real Hustle' scam
A man has been arrested by police investigating a scam in which Birmingham bar owners were left fake dry-cleaning bills.

Twenty bars in Broad Street received the letters claiming staff had spilled wine on the sender's clothes and asking for the bill to be paid.

A similar trick was recently featured on BBC Three's Real Hustle programme.

West Midlands Police said that a man had been arrested and bailed pending further inquiries.
