BBC News reports that a convicted fraudster has admitted lying to get a job at an energy firm he then defrauded of more than £40,000.

James Cox made up references and a CV to land the £65,000 finance director role at Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC).

He hid the fact he has twice been jailed for fraud, once after taking £2.8m from a previous employer to supposedly set up an F1 racing team.

In 2000, he bought a racing car and portrayed himself as the founder of an F1 team, complete with a press launch attended by several celebrities.
