A woman found guilty of conning a south of Scotland garage firm out of £110,000 has lodged an appeal against her sentence and conviction.

Wanda Campbell, 43, of Auchenmalg near Newton Stewart, was jailed for three years earlier this month.

She was also ordered to pay compensation of £110,000 at Dumfries Sheriff Court.

Her appeal against that sentence and the conviction will be heard at the Appeal Court in Edinburgh.

She was found guilty after a seven-day trial of acting with others to take the money from James Haugh Castle Douglas between March 2012 and October 2013.
