Fraudster confesses

A CALLOUS Leigh man is awaiting sentence after he admitted fraud involving a cheque stolen from a 90-year-old woman.

Window cleaner Stephen Anthony Langley pleaded guilty to false representation involving a £5,650 cheque in the name of his Beech Hill victim on October 17.

However, the 25-year-old, of Sandringham Drive, Leigh, denied stealing the cheque and the hearing was told that that charge is to be dropped.

The cheque was made out in the name of pensioner Elizabeth Winstanley

Langley was further remanded on bail by a Liverpool Crown Court judge to await sentence on Monday October 17.
