Hughes, who was jailed for mortgage fraud, was yesterday freed from prison after appealing his 43-month sentence at the High Court in Edinburgh.

The entrepreneur, whose wife is expecting their fifth child, may now be able to be at the birth of their baby.

He was jailed for 43 months last month by sheriff Alan Mackenzie after he pleaded guilty to fraudulently getting his hands on £1,287,955 for two mortgages.
