Fraudster pretended to be in a coma for TWO YEARS to avoid court over £40,000 scam but was caught walking around Tesco after police traced him using loyalty card


Conman Alan Knight of Swansea, South Wales faked that he was in a vegetative state after he scammed his next door neighbour out of £40,000. The 47-year-old tried to beat justice claiming he was a quadriplegic - and was even hooked up to oxygen and had no movement from the neck down. But a court heard how he was caught out after CCTV captured him walking around the Tesco and driving his car to Dorset. He and his wife Helen are pictured left on a shopping trip and right in hospital as he pretended to be in a coma.
