Pyramid scheme victim: 'It sounded fantastic'

David Gough was a victim of 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. Six women have been convicted of operating the scheme.

Mr Gough told the BBC's Jon Kay that he was given the impression "nobody would lose" but he is still living with the consequences.
