Reports of fake law firms have increased by 125% in the last two years, according to figures from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Criminals are pretending to be genuine lawyers to try to con clients.

The SRA, which regulates solicitors in England and Wales, said it recorded 701 reports about bogus law firms in 2014, up from 312 in 2012.

It follows a warning from the Law Society of Scotland that the number of fake firms is on the rise.
