On 19 August, the Eastern Daily Press reported that a top solicitor, Hugh Lansdell, 71, admitted taking almost £2 million 2015-17 – after being duped by lottery scammers. He began taking money from clients’ accounts after becoming convinced he had won a lottery – and needed to pay fees to secure his “winnings”.  He took around £1.5 million from his clients and £350,000 from 2 north Norfolk charities where he was a trustee.
