MP Geraint Davies duped by Swansea conman

An MP has admitted being duped by a conman who pretended to be quadriplegic and claimed police were abusing him.

Geraint Davies said he took up Alan Knight's case "in good faith" and wrote to police after meeting his wife, Helen.

Knight, 47, from Swansea, faked the condition to evade prosecution after conning a neighbour out of £40,000.

Abigail Neal reports.
