Kirsty Cox in court accused of £1m iPad scam

A mobile phone dealer, accused of a £1m-plus fraud to supply customers with thousands of cheap iPads, has denied the bulk of the 26 charges she faces.

Kirsty Cox, of Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, admitted two counts of fraud, but denied 24 others at a brief hearing at Teesside Crown Court.

The mother-of-two was granted bail and will go on trial on 4 November.

Trading as K.C. Consultancy, she is accused of dishonestly taking orders between March and December last year.

Judge Simon Bourne-Arton, the Recorder of Middlesbrough, was told the trial could last two weeks.
