Their arrests were the result of a proactive investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary which culminated in a number of warrants in April 2017.

Mehta is further charged with two counts of fraud.

He also pleaded guilty to these offences in court today.

They relate to him using a fake persona under the name Steve Denton so that he could rent the flat from his own letting company.

He also claimed back a single person occupancy allowance from Dacorum Borough Council.

They will both be sentenced at Luton Crown Court in June this year.
