The former chief executive of an addiction treatment provider has appeared in court charged with committing fraud by paying for car insurance and gym memberships from company funds.

Daniel Farnham is charged with three counts of committing fraud by abuse of position while he was in the post at Lowestoft-based East Coast Recovery.

Farnham, 46 of St Olaves Road, Herringfleet, is said to have abused his position by paying for his car insurance from company funds in February 2012 when not authorised to do so.

In October 2013 it is alleged he abused his position by paying for David Lloyd Gym memberships for himself and his wife Katie Farnham from company funds when not authorised to do so.

The third charge relates to his wife and says he paid fraudulent invoices submitted by her.

Katie Farnham, 35, of The Green, Somerleyton, also appeared in Great Yarmouth Magistrate Court charged with making fraud by false representation by claiming money from East Coast Recovery for massages she did not conduct with clients between May 2014 and March 2015.

They both denied the charges and were bailed to appear at Ipswich Crown Court on August 15.
