Three British men have been sentenced to a total of 43 years in prison in the United States for their part in one of the UK's biggest investment frauds.

Richard Pope, Simon Odoni and Paul Gunter conned British investors out of £80m.

This was then funnelled off into US bank accounts for them to enjoy a lavish lifestyle.
