Convictions in 7.5 million mile car clocking conspiracy case

Fleet News (27 February) reports on the convictions of five individuals for conspiracy to commit fraud, arising out clocking activities that wiped an astonishing 7.5 million miles off the mileage of a hundred cars in the possession of the chauffeur services company they worked for. Warrington Borough Council and Halton Borough Council trading standards carried out a three-year investigation before bringing the prosecutions (during which the two boroughs' joint trading standards team was split into two). The defendants were found guilty after a six-week jury trial at Chester Crown Court: two other defendants were acquitted.
