A Haverhill man has pleaded guilty to attempting to take over a housing association tenancy by fraudulent means during a hearing at West Suffolk Magistrates Court in Bury St Edmunds last Thursday (10).

Laurence Gray, 66, of Beaumont Court admitted one charge under section two of the Fraud Act 2006 of providing false information to Havebury Housing Partnership in an attempt to succeed the tenancy of his late mother and also inherit the maximum right to buy discount.

Gray was given a 12-month community order to include 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay costs of £575.
