Prisoner ordered to pay back £29k

A MAN who took almost £40,000 from two women in their 80s by pressurising them to hand over "grossly inflated" sums for unnecess-ary work has been ordered to hand over £29,000.

Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court granted the order against Robert McLaren, of HMP Perth, who was jailed for 31 months last year .
