A cancer charity who donated into plans to build a giant Welsh dragon has been ordered by the High Court to pay more than £117,000 to local cancer causes.

Mr Wingett invested £410,000 of the charity's earnings into a project for the 210ft sculpture in Chirk, Wrexham.

Its last payment in 2011 to Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board was for £4,500

The High Court has ordered more than £117,000, which will be distributed to local charities to provide support for cancer patients treated.

Mr Wingett misuse of funds was an abuse of the trust placed in him by the many donors to the charity.

The charity provides benefits to those in the local community they were intended for.

In 2017, Mr Wingett was banned from acting as a trustee of any charity for 10 years.
