But the 47-year old, from Three Mile Lane, Costessey, is now back in a cell after breaching his conditions, the Ministry of Justice said on Friday.

The MoJ would not say which conditions he had breached.

Miller's victims handed over more than £200,000 to him for jobs which were either never completed or finished to a poor standard.

He was prosecuted by Norfolk County Council Trading Standards for fraudulent trading and money laundering.

He was also disqualified from being a company director for seven years.
