A Cavendish man has been cleared of involvement in helping a businessman and his wife commit fraud.

Ian Bull, of Poole Street, was cleared of failing to disclose information under the Proceeds of Crime Act, prejudicing a criminal investigation by concealing documents and tipping off an individual that they were being investigated for fraud.

The charges related to the 62-year-old’s dealings with Stephen and Lorraine Oakley, from Haverhill Road, Little Wratting.

The couple were found guilty of fraud at Birmingham Crown Court earlier this month. Their conviction related to the business HSS Vulcan, which the pair ran.

Their daughter, Joanne Oakley, from Ashen, was cleared of a charge of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Mr and Mrs Oakley will be sentenced on March 20. Both have been released on conditional bail.
