A senior tax adviser who defrauded his customers out of thousands of pounds is expected to be jailed today.

Timothy Bash, 58, of Dereham Road, Mattishall, was working as a tax manager with Lovewell Blake in Norwich when he inflated his clients bills and tax returns for almost seven years.

Last month he pleaded guilty to abusing his position of trust and obtaining payments from clients in lieu of fictitious or inflated bills or tax liabilities.

The judge warned him at the time to expect a "substantial term in prison".
