Fake Britain, Series 2 Episode 7 of 16

Duration: 45 minutes

With Dominic Littlewood.

We investigate the murky world of the loansharks and reveal the extraordinary case of the 78-year-old grandmother peddling fake loans. We meet Jane Badger, who was arrested in her own home and accused of fraud, even though she was entirely innocent, because a fraudster had made fake withdrawals on her credit card.

We follow the story of the fake car brake pads being sold in Northern Ireland and see how they dramatically fail safety standards on the test track. We see a trading standards team as they go undercover, setting up a fake hen night to catch a limo company putting lives in danger.

And we follow the investigators targeting the fakers who are making money out of one of the UK's most successful industries - computer games.
