BELL:PATIENTS LEFT IN PAIN AFTER MIDWIFE GUZZLED THEIR PILLS

LANARKSHIRE Patients were left in pain after a midwife used their names to order large quantities of pills - and neck them herself.

One patient complained she was left in pain because she did not get the codeine she needed.

CLAY: CONMAN USED £50M SWINDLE TO PROP UP DOOMED BUSINESS

EDWALTON, NOTTINGHAM; BELPER, DERBYSHIRE A 'deluded' conman who swindled nearly £50m from investors to prop up his doomed property schemes approached business like a gambler, a court heard. Richard Clay, 50, blew a fortune on a fleet of expensive cars and even a helicopter while his projects haemorrhaged money. Clay and partner Kathryn Clark, 53, used marketing company Arck LLP to push unregulated financial products on individuals and Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs). The pair duped investors into handing over millions of pounds, which they thought would be used to fund building projects, including a golf resort on the paradise archipelago of Cape Verde, off the northwest coast of Africa.

HENDERSON:TRUSTEE'S SHOCK AT 'STOVE CASH FOR HOME' CLAIM

HELSTON, HAYLE, CORNWALL; BEAUMINSTER, DORSET A former trustee at ShelterBox told a court of his shock when it was suggested that payment for stoves had in fact been used to pay for a new home for the son of the company boss. Tom Henderson, 64, head of the disaster relief charity, funnelled cash to companies controlled by his son John, 35, in a five year fraud, it is claimed. Board member Ian Munday was one of the signatories to a cheque for £263,200 which was made payable to Camping Solutions. Another trustee raised concerns about the cheque during a board meeting in November 2008 and called for Henderson to be suspended.

CHARITY TRUSTEE RESIGNED AFTER SUGGESTING CEO SHOULD BE SUSPENDED

HELSTON, HAYLE, CORNWALL; BEAUMINSTER, DORSET A former trustee at ShelterBox resigned after 'awed' colleagues rejected his suggestion that the CEO should be suspended for handing a £534,000 contract to his son, a court heard. Bank manager James Kingston said he discovered a cheque for half the amount made out to a company owned by the disaster relief charity founder Tom Henderson's son, John, 35. Mr Kingston, who had been involved in ShelterBox since 2000, raised his concerns at a board meeting in November 2008, where he said his 64-year-old boss should step aside until the matter was properly investigated. But the other trustees were 'awed' by the influence of 'bullish' Henderson during a heated board meeting and Mr Kingston stepped down after receiving no support, the Old Bailey heard.

HENDERSON: 'SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY AT SHELTERBOX', COURT HEARS

CORNWALL The Head of Finance at international aid charity ShelterBox told jurors today (TUES) how he became 'extremely suspicious' about a £650,000 order for camping equipment. Michael Johns said he discovered in early 2012 that CEO Tom Henderson, 64, had approved the purchase of tents and tools from a company linked to his son John Henderson. Mr Johns began investigating and was told that 35 year-old John Henderson received a commission on every item ordered by ShelterBox.
