'Pyramid scheme' operation sees nine women convicted
Nine women have been convicted of operating a "pyramid" scheme in which thousands of investors lost money.
The "Give and Take" scheme operated in south-west England and south Wales five years ago.
The nine were all from the Bristol area, six were given a nine month prison sentence. Investigators say more than £20m was invested by about 10,000 members of the public.
