Two men convicted of £500k Gleneagles 'terrorist' robbery

Two men have been convicted for their parts in a £500,000 armed robbery at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

The pair, Richard Fleming and Liam Richardson, came heavily armed with a hammer, a machete and a pistol when they raided the prestigious hotel in June 2017.

They stole dozens of Rolex watches worth more than half a million pounds, and these have yet to be recovered.

According to police, the extreme violence on display lead to staff and guests thinking it was a terrorist attack.

Londoner Fleming, 42 denied being involved, but was convicted by a jury on Wednesday following a trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Meanwhile fellow Londoner Richardson, 30, confessed to his part in the robbery before the trial started. They will both be sentenced next month, and they can be expecting some serious bird for this extremely terrifying crime.
