A gang of ATM thieves who were snared in a dramatic showdown at an Angus fast food restaurant have been found guilty following a trial.
Seven men were responsible for 13 raids on ATMs around the UK, including four in Scotland.
On Wednesday, Andrew White, Anthony White, Nanu Miah, Anthony Conroy, Carl Cavanagh, Michael Galea and Gary Carey were found guilty of offences including conspiracy to cause explosions and conspiracy to commit burglary.
The men mainly tried to obtain cash inside the ATMs by filling them with oxyacetylene gas and igniting them with a spark from a car battery.
Two ATMs in Aberdeen were targeted using this method, in June and August 2015.
In early 2016, they also tried to steal money from ATMs by dragging them out of properties in Perth and Carnoustie.
They made off in high-powered sports cars, such as Audi RS4s, RS6s and Mercedes A45 and GLA45 AMGs, taking thousands of pounds in the process.
In scenes likened to the famous film The Italian Job, the gang had driven the high-performance getaway cars up ramps and into the back of a stolen articulated truck.
The lorry was also fitted out with hammocks for the raiders to sleep in, and a quick access hatch cut into the side of it.
Five members of the gang were cornered at a McDonald’s car park in Arbroath last February, following the Carnoustie raid.
They tried to escape by ramming a police vehicle with their stolen Mercedes but officers used tyre-deflating rounds to disable it.
The conviction, at Liverpool Crown Court, follows an investigation by police officers from the TITAN unit, which probes organised crime in the north west of England.
The men are due to be sentenced later in April.
