Bogus driveway repairmen jailed for a total of 20 years

Three family members have been jailed for cheating elderly people with shoddy work on their driveways.

They were caught after filming themselves laughing about charging a 78-year-old man £800 for sealing a driveway with a bottle of milk.

Francis Tomney, 55, Francis Tomney, 22 and Thomas Tomney, 22, all of Cleveleys, Lancashire, admitted charges including conspiracy to commit fraud.

All three were jailed at Preston Crown Court.
