Crash for cash scam caught on Pengam garage's CCTV

Five people have been found guilty over the biggest car insurance fraud investigation in the UK.

They were convicted of making six insurance claims worth £144,000 between 2009 and 2011.

Two others were found not guilty at Cardiff Crown Court on Thursday.

It operated out of a garage based in Pengam in Blackwood, Caerphilly county, which was known as both St David's Crash Repair and Easifix.

The most blatant example was when they repeatedly drove a Land Rover Discovery into a forklift truck in the garage yard, as captured on their own CCTV and obtained by Gwent Police.
