A man who lied about his income to carry out a mortgage fraud has been jailed for a total of three years.
Alistair Fairlie, 46, told Birmingham Midshires bank in 2007 that he was a £60,000-a-year business manager.
After he was given a mortgage to buy a flat in Glasgow, he told the Registers of Scotland it had been repaid, giving him access to £125,000.
Fairlie, who was jailed at Glasgow Sheriff Court, also admitted obtaining £5,000 of goods fraudulently.
Sheriff Martin Jones QC told Fairlie: "Custody is necessary and the only appropriate sentence."
