A roofer who fleeced nine vulnerable elderly people out of £50,000 by overcharging for substandard work has been jailed for four years.

William Wallace, 39, admitted nine fraud charges against pensioners in three counties ranging in age from 70 to 88 years.

Wallace, of Justin Park caravan park, Northampton Road, Market Harborough was told by Judge Simon Hammond, at Leicester Crown Court, that his deliberate targeting of pensioners was both “despicable, pitiless and heartless”.
