Hornchurch man faces trial over fake �1 coins plot
A 28-year-old Hornchurch man is accused of plotting to flood the UK with �6m of fake �1.
Daniel Sullivan, of Bancroft Chase, will stand trial in March on a single charge of conspiracy to pass or give to another to pass a counterfeit of a protected coin.
The UK’s largest haul of fake coins was seized from properties in Enfield, Hertfordshire and Essex and two vehicles in the Essex area.
An estimated �6m worth of blank and counterfeit �1 coins were recovered from a 40ft freight container and another �107,000 worth was also seized.
Kevin Fisher, 53, of (St George’s) Rags Lane, Cheshunt, Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, will stand trial on the same charge, also in March.
