This Is Lancashire: Nelson man jailed for 8 months after two roofing frauds Nelson man jailed for 8 months after two roofing frauds

A NELSON man has been jailed for eight months after admitting his involvement in two roofing scams in West Yorkshire.

Charlie Smith, 34, was detained by Calderdale Police after reports of bogus workmen in Todmorden last October.

An appeal was issued by police after a distinctive red van, with orange and red reflective stripes, was seen touring the area.

Smith, of Borrowdale Avenue, Nelson, admitted fraud, in which he is alleged to have claimed work totalling £8,000 was needed on a property in Joshua Street, Todmorden.

He also pleaded guilty to a second fraud, in which he claimed work totalling £200 was required at a property in nearby Bath Street.

Smith was jailed for four months for each offence by Judge Peter Benson, at Bradford Crown Court.

His co-defendant, Jon-Paul Fawcett, formerly of Adelaide Street, Hebden Bridge, but now living in Burnley, was acquitted of both charges after the prosecution offered no evidence.
