Bogus bomb detector man Samuel Tree jailed

A man who sold plastic devices which he made in his garden shed, which he claimed could detect bombs and drugs, has been jailed.

Samuel Tree, 68, was sentenced to three and a half years while his wife Joan, 62, received 300 hours community work.

Police said they were driven by "personal greed" and were part of a criminal network worth £80m.

Caroline Hawley reports.
