Two masked robbers who ambushed a terrified Scottish couple at gunpoint after luring them 600 miles to Bradford to buy a car advertised on the internet have received prison sentences totalling more than 16 years.

Drug dealer Sajid Hussain, who cocked a firearm and pointed it at Michael Irvine’s head, was jailed for ten years.

He was locked up for seven years for robbery and three years for peddling Class A drugs in the Manningham area of Bradford.

Shahid Sadik, who was on prison licence for aggravated vehicle taking, was locked up for six years and three months.

They were yesterday sentenced at Bradford Crown Court for robbing Mr Irvine and his partner, Louise Cogle, who live in the Shetland Islands, of £5,000 cash, and possession of a firearm or an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

Hussain, 26, of Cuncliffe Villas, Manningham, Bradford, was convicted by a jury on Friday. Sadik, 24, of Toller Lane, Bradford, pleaded guilty on the day of his trial.
