A gang of Farmville fans in Romania who conned their way to more than £400,000 in subsidies for fake farms is suing the government after payments were stopped.

Inspired by the online game, the eight men claimed to have 1,860 cows and received about £100 per animal over three years.

The group say they weren’t told the farms had to be real when they applied and are taking their case to court.
