A gang who posed as police officers to kidnap a man before torturing him for 18 hours as part of a £200,000 ransom plot have been jailed for a total of 38 years.

The man was beaten with metal batons, stabbed, attacked with a machete, burnt with an iron and had boiling water poured over him during the terrifying ordeal.

At one stage his family were forced to listen to his agonised screams as the gang demanded a £200,000 ransom payment.

On July 26 last year, five men posing as police officers in full uniform - including armed vests, hats and radios - put their victim under fake arrest.

The gang attended the home of the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and after an alleged 'search for evidence' put him in their stolen Audi A3.
