A CANCER survivor who carried out a £200,000 mortgage fraud has been jailed for three years.

Alistair Fairlie took part in the con after falsely claiming he was a £60,000-a-year business manager.

Fairlie was then able to snap up a flat in Glasgow city centre - then said he was the owner enabling him to access a six-figure sum.
