Dunstable couple guilty of bomb detector fraud

A couple in their sixties who made fake bomb detectors and sold them around the world have been convicted of fraud.

Sam Tree and his wife, Joan, made the bogus devices in their garden shed at Dunstable in Bedfordshire.

The couple had denied fraud at the Old Bailey trial, claiming their device, sold as Alpha 6, did work.

Lisa Hampele reports.
