Jail for former manager of Royal Horticultural Society

False invoices were submitted for cleaning work

A former manager at the Royal Horticultural Society has been jailed for four years for masterminding a decade-long scam against the charity.

Stuart Medhurst plundered £700,000 of RHS funds to help pay for a luxury lifestyle.

The fraud involved submitting false invoices for cleaning work. Two associates who helped him have also been jailed.
