Two forgers who used an ordinary office photocopier and Tipp-Ex to print pounds 1.5m of fake pounds 20 notes were each jailed for five years at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court yesterday.

Anthony Chalk, 32, a businessman, of Beulah, Powys, and Kurt Sandberg, 33, a former soldier, of Pent-twyn, Gwent, made notes with 'watermarks' which were so convincing they were 'virtually impossible' to spot.
