Plea hearing in £30m fraud case put back

A plea hearing for a 45-year-old man from Windsor charged with playing a role in a mortgage loan fraud worth more than £30million has been put back.

Mark Entwistle, of Kings Road, was set to enter a plea at Reading Crown Court on Friday but the case has been moved to Croydon Crown Court and no new date has been set.

Entwistle has been charged with 23 counts of conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

He also faces one charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering and one of conspiracy to commit corruption.

Seven other men are also facing varying numbers of fraud charges in relation to allegations made by the Royal Bank of Scotland and other lenders, who claim mortgage loans more than £30million were fraudulently obtained.

The crown alleges the eight men garnered large sums of cash through fraudulent mortgage applications and then used the money for other means.

All are on conditional bail.
