People who have been found to deliberately mislead HM Revenue and Customs are having their names published online.

The culprits are individuals who have tried to avoid paying more than £25,000 of tax.

Treasury Minister David Gauke told BBC News that the sanction was part of a range of measures that tax cheats face, including hefty fines.
