A mansion that was seized by police investigating a £70m postal scam has gone on sale.

Hadley Grange, at Jordans in Buckinghamshire, belonged to Narinder Sandhu, 62, who was jailed in February for conspiracy to commit fraud.

He was the architect of a plan to cheat the Royal Mail by falsely declaring mail weights, classes and destinations, Southwark Crown Court heard.

Prosecutors said he used the proceeds to fund a lavish lifestyle.

His wealth included the mansion, complete with a separate pool house, as well as Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars.

The property, in a village where celebrities Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have a home, is on sale for £2.75m.

Prosecutors said the falsely categorised mail was sent through logistics companies in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire from 2005 to 2017.

They said the scam cost the Royal Mail about £70m, although the defendants earned a smaller sum.

The firms involved – including Tiger International Logistics, Worldwide Transport Express and Global Express Worldwide – are due to be sentenced in December.

Sandhu, who pleaded guilty to the conspiracy along with his company Packpost International, was jailed for four years.

His brother Parmjeet Sandhu, 57, of Iver, Buckinghamshire, admitted obtaining services dishonestly and was given a two-year suspended sentence.

Company director James Mooney, 44, of Bournemouth, Dorset, was handed a 21-month suspended sentence for the fraud conspiracy.
