A counterfeit Viagra conman whose trial was delayed after he was run over outside the Old Bailey has pleaded guilty at the same court for his part in an £11m fraud.

Seth Pennington admitted his guilt after changing his plea at the court today.

The 41-year-old's trial was delayed by more than five months after he was involved in a collision with a lorry as he crossed the road outside the Old Bailey on only the second day of his trial in May.

Pennington, of Brighton, was part of a gang that pulled in more than £11m selling knock off Viagra across the world.

The drugs ring, which was headed by 41-year-old Neil Gilbert, who had already pleaded guilty, used the ruse of jewellery, fishing tackle and cosmetics companies to accept electronic payments and laundered the proceeds through more than 100 bank accounts in the UK and abroad.

Pennington was involved in one of the front companies and allowed payments to be made into his bank accounts.

He originally denied conspiracy to sell or supply unlicensed medicines between 2004 and 2012, as well as money laundering and possession of counterfeit goods.

But he today became the final member of the gang to admit his guilt after seven others pleaded guilty at earlier appearances.
