A MAN has been jailed for 26 weeks after pleading guilty to fraud offences.

Ashaq Sattar, 40, of Claremont in Heckmondwike visited elderly residents in Brighton Street, pretending that he worked for the NHS and offering to collect their medications for a fee.

Sattar was arrested on March 24 and was later charged with five counts of fraud, each relating to residents he had visited earlier that day.
