A man has admitted trying to make thousands of pounds by claiming building work was needed when in fact it wasn’t.

Tony Smith, 41, appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on December 4.

He was charged with committing fraud by dishonestly making a false representation, namely stating that building work was required when it was not.

Smith, of Plaistow Road, Godalming in Surrey, had intended to make £18,020 out of the unnecessary work in Hatfield between November 1 2016 and March 31 2017.

He has admitted the offence and is due to be sentenced at St Albans Crown Court on January 5.
