A 30-YEAR-OLD man has appeared before Blackburn magistrates charged with a £62,000 fraud on his employer.

Glen Harkness, of Whalley Road, Langho, is alleged to have obtained the money over a two year period while working for Greenacre Honda, Clitheroe, as an assistant accountant. He is alleged to have held money back from the bank and altered invoices.

Harkness, who faces nine charges of fraud by abuse of position, was directed to Preston Crown Court and remanded on bail for the preparation of committal papers.
