Former cop jailed over PS50m fraud; SCAM.

Byline: DAMIEN FLETCHER

A FORMER policeman has been jailed for seven years for his part in the country's biggest ever mortgage fraud.

Ex-officer Antony Lowry-Huws, 65, was said to be the ringleader in the PS50million con that involved 1,000 bogus mortgage applications.

Three others were jailed but his wife Susan, 60, received a 12-month sentence suspended for two years.

All members of the fivestrong gang were convicted of conspiracy to defraud.

Elspeth Pringle, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said the scale and duration of the con demonstrated "criminal behaviour at its most devious".

The Lowry-Huwses, from Kinmel Bay, Conwy, were sentenced at Mold crown court alongside developer Sheila Whalley, of Llanfair Talhaiarn, Conwy, who got six years; and solicitor Nicholas Jones, 54, of Flintshire, and surveyor Frank Darlington, 62, of Barnoldswick, Lancs, who both got four years.
