Forces for Good fraud: Veterans' grants controls call


Falklands veteran Simon Weston is calling for tighter controls over the way grants are handed-out to veterans' charities.

It comes after a conman stole tens of thousands of pounds which was meant to help injured soldiers.

Chris O'Neill received a grant of £125,000 from the Welsh government but then went on a spending spree buying a speedboat, gambling and running-up hotel bills.

Tim Rogers reports.
