A man who conned people out of £53,000 by fraudulently selling caravans at a Moray holiday park has been given extra time to pay his victims back.

Neale Rothera, 36, collected money from four women and three men for caravans that belonged to other people.

The consultant sales manager pretended he owned the holiday homes at Silver Sands in Lossiemouth.

Rothera, of Wymeswold, Leicestershire, previously admitted fraud at Elgin Sheriff Court.

Defence layer Iain McGregor told the court his client had repaid £26,500, and handed over a cheque paying back a further £3,500.

He said Rothera would be in a position to pay the outstanding balance in 12 weeks from his salary and expected bonus.

Rothera was working at the time as a self-employed consultant sales manager with Green Parcs Ltd.
