A conman has admitted duping his ex-girlfriend out of her life savings worth nearly £300,000.

Mark Acklom convinced Carolyn Woods to lend him money for renovation work at a string of properties he owned after he promised to marry her.

At Bristol Crown Court, 45-year-old Acklom, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to five charges of fraud worth a combined £295,640.

Acklom, who was extradited from Switzerland, will be sentenced later.
