A man has been convicted of fraud after HPBC staff became suspicious of a land contamination report submitted in support of an application to convert a farm building in Glossop. Gary Dainton, aged 47, the director of Dragonfly Environmental, had falsified land contamination certificates at a number of sites around Manchester, including a primary school. He pleaded guilty to two counts of obtaining property by deception and six counts of fraud. Seventeen other offences were ordered to lie on file. He was given a 12 months suspended jail sentence at Minshull Street Crown Court.
