John Miller was jailed for four years in March after ripping off customers for £220,000 worth of building jobs.

The 46-year old, from Three Mile Lane, Costessey, took the money from eight customers for extensions he never completed.

His victims used their life savings, took out bank loans and spent £122,000 to undo Miller's damage and finish jobs. They suffered from sleep deprivation and severe stress, prosecutors said.

During one project, which was never completed, he took holidays to Las Vegas, New York, Greece and Tenerife.

In one case Miller fixed an extension to a house using shelf joints.

He is set to appear at Norwich Crown Court on Wednesday for a hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

POCA hearings follow a conviction where prosecutors attempt to claw money back.
