A corrupt police officer and four other men who plotted to kidnap a bank manager have been jailed.

Pc Mesut Karakas, 25, conspired with Richmond Darko, 25; Ijah Rowe, 24; Jamie Lowe, 25; and 24-year-old Gokhan Kuru, to kidnap a London-based Lloyds TSB manager in an attempt to steal money.

Sentencing the men at Blackfriars Crown Court, Judge Aidan Marron QC told them: "Your collective activity was planned professionally and systematically.

"No-one listening to the probe material will forget the cold, callous way that you behaved."
