Lee admits fraud over snooker cue

SNOOKER player Stephen Lee has been fined £1,815 after admitting a charge of fraud by false representation.

Magistrates in Swindon heard the 39-year-old, from Trowbridge, Wiltshire, agreed to sell his snooker cue to a fan based in Hong Kong through his Facebook page. But although £1,600 was paid into Lee's wife's bank account, the cue was never sent.
