A MAN has been jailed after admitting defrauding four women.

Peter Gray, 35, of Calder View, Mirfield, appeared at Leeds Crown Court today where he was sentenced to 56 months in jail for four counts of fraud by false representation.

He was also made the subject of restraining orders in relation to the victims.

The charges related to Gray making fraudulent loan applications in the names of the victims.

Collectively he defrauded the victims to the value of about £80k.

Detective Constable Jess Hird, of Kirklees District CID, said: “Gray has committed offences against a number of victims for his own personal financial gain.

“Gray is now rightly behind bars for the offences he has committed.

“I would urge anyone who believes that their details have been used fraudulently to report it. We can, and will, take action against fraudsters such as Gray.”
