SERIAL swindler Jay Cartmill has been named in court as the "principal suspect and mastermind" in a multi-million pound fraud probe.

A police officer made the revelation as the Belfast businessman - who previously scammed TV stars Stephen Nolan and Eamonn Holmes - was refused bail last week on an unrelated fraud charge.

Cartmill was arrested last Monday after he allegedly went into the Dunmurry branch of Ulster Bank and signed a form for a Covid-19 bounce back loan while claiming that he was Sean McMahon.
