Adeola Thomas, a 38-year-old from Hackney in London, has been jailed for an attempted £3.8 million benefits scam - using stolen identities. The judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court said: "This was no less than a criminal industry, with simple and eye watering criminality designed to maximise the loss to the public."

So what did he do, and how did he get caught?
