Victim duped by copycat website calls for block

A man who ended up paying more for his car tax after being tricked by a copycat website has called for them to be blocked.

Tom Williams said the websites, which look very similar to authentic ones, were exploiting vulnerable people.

Islwyn Labour MP Chris Evans, who raised the issue in the House of Commons, said such companies were able to charge additional fees quite legally but used "underhand methods" to "fool" people.

Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey said rogue websites were being closed down.

Paul Heaney reports.
