A former plant hire boss from Truro who threatened rival companies and torched their equipment has lost an appeal against a confiscation order.

At an earlier hearing, Jack Harvey was ordered to pay almost £2.3 million towards stolen goods and profits from crime but now a judge has ruled that still stands.

The 71 year old is currently serving a nine and a half year prison sentence.

Detective Inspector Claire Stalley said: "We're very satisfied with this latest outcome - it sends a clear message to criminals and would-be criminals that 'crime doesn't pay'. Those who choose to involve themselves in criminal activity should be under no doubt, we will go after their assets and fiercely contest any efforts to minimise confiscation."
