A property development company which lost more than £250,000 in a “sophisticated” scam will get most of the money back immediately if the fraudster surveyor who conned them is not jailed, a judge was told.

Chartered surveyor Niall Gallagher (56) admitted what Judge Richard Greene QC described as “an abominable breach of trust” to steal £277,231 from Bell Orr Properties Ltd.
