A Thorne man is due to appear in court later today accused of defrauding two women of thousands of pounds.

Jonathan Hill, aged 43, has been ordered to attend Sheffield Magistrates’ Court for a plea hearing. Hill, of Corona Drive, will face two charges of fraud by false representation between February and September 2012.

He was arrested in March last year following reports made to police by a woman claiming he had defrauded her of just over £18,000.

As part of the investigation, another woman was identified who also claimed she had been defrauded of almost £7,000.
