Fraudster faces fresh investigation

FRAUDSTER John Darwin will again appear in court after a fresh police probe into claims of undeclared investments.

The 63-year-old, from Hartlepool, faked his own death in a canoeing accident in 2002 so then-wife Ann could claim hundreds of thousands of pounds. He is to appear at Teesside Crown Court next week.
