She was snatched from her home at gun point in the middle of the night and abducted with her two year old daughter, all for a ransom of £20,000

That's what a woman living in the Yorkshire Dales has been through as intruders held her captive in a barn for over 18 hours.

Today North Yorkshire builder Tony Scaife from Long Preston, and his son Matthew, have been sentenced 12 and 10 years repectively for the kidnapping.

For the first time the pair admitted to the crime in court today during sentencing.

Detective Superintendent Alan Carey's told Minster FM it's closure for the victims.
