John Miller was jailed for four years in March last year for ripping off customers through building projects worth £220,000.

He was serving his sentence in open prison and was temporarily allowed out on certain days.

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.
