A bank manager from the Black Country has been jailed for five years for his part in a massive £60million tax fraud.
 
Carl Harte from Manor Abbey Road, Halesowen opened a bogus bank account to siphon off £3million of the cash generated by the mobile phone VAT scam.
 
The 42-year-old bank special business relationship manager based at Barclays Bank in Hagley Road, Edgbaston was locked up along with brother-in-law, businessman William Wright, 47, of Kings Norton, Birmingham, whose company Applied Services was used in the racket and got three years behind bars.
