A squatter who tried to sell the cottage he was living in has avoided a jail sentence.
Ewan Turner attempted to claim £70,000 from selling the property in Walkerburn in the Scottish Borders.
The 36-year-old even spent thousands of pounds doing up the property, but was caught when the owner discovered it was for sale. Police have described his crimes as very 'rare'.
