The boss of a cancer charity who spent almost half a million pounds of donations on a giant Welsh dragon statue project has been ordered to pay more than £100,000 to local good causes.

Legal action was brought against Simon Wingett after it was revealed that he had ploughed £410,000 of his charity’s earnings into a project to create a 210ft dragon sculpture.

The statue, which Mr Wingett hoped would become a tourist attraction, was never built.

He has now been ordered by the High Court of Justice to pay more than £117,000, which will be distributed to local charities supporting the relief of cancer patients treated in Wrexham.
