Two men have been warned they face jail after admitting drugging and kidnapping a relative when she refused to marry a man they had chosen for her.

In the third week of the trial at Preston Crown Court Shamrez Khan confessed to holding his sister Nayla Afsar captive claiming she'd dishonoured their family.
