Garry Faulds, 21, and his fiancee Laura Colquhoun, 17, both of Paisley, hatched a plot to force the 53-year-old man to hand over large amounts of cash.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard how the man, who took a series of photographs of Colquhoun, was bound with tape and beaten by Faulds.

Faulds was jailed for six years and Colquhoun given three years' detention.
