A man has been jailed for eight months after he was caught playing rugby while making a £923,000 claim for wrist injuries.

The Old Bailey heard David Ribchester, 31, was secretly filmed at his local rugby club where he was "seen to grab the ball with both hands and go into a hard tackle" despite claiming he was unable to carry out the most basic of tasks and even tie his shoelaces.
