A FATHER and son have appeared in court charged with two counts of fraud.

Kevin Sherwood senior, of Wimborne Road in Bournemouth, and Kevin Sherwood junior, of Craigmoor Avenue in Bournemouth, were before Poole Magistrates’ Court last week.

The men, 60 and 38, are accused of making false representations.

Prosecutors allege they claimed £126,000 was a fair price for building works at a home in Hiley Road, Poole on dates between July and November 2017, and that £50,000 was a fair price for works at Highfield Road, Wimborne on dates between December 2016 and October 2017.

They have not yet entered pleas to either of the charges. Both will next appear for a plea and trial preparation hearing at Bournemouth Crown Court in February.
