Six convicted over £20m 'pyramid' scheme

Six 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, Bristol Crown Court heard.

The scheme had collected more than £20m from about 10,000 people, often vulnerable women.

Three other women had already received suspended sentences for promoting the scheme.

Caroline Evans reports.
