ANGEL Coatings resin driveways director, Simon Regan, has been jailed for fraudulent trading on the Isle of Wight.

Regan, of Bradfield Road, Barrows Green, Crewe, appeared before a judge at Southampton Crown Court today (Thursday).

The 57-year-old had denied three counts of fraudulent trading, between September 9, 2014, and March 14, 2021, and was found guilty at trial last month. 

His case was adjourned so a pre-sentence report could be drawn up.

A proceeds of crime hearing was also fixed for August 4 to determine the amount of money to be confiscated.
