Man jailed for robbing journalists with sword

A man has been jailed for robbing two Trinity Mirror journalists at sword point after falsely claiming he had images of a celebrity taking cocaine, reports Wales Online.

James Williams, 23, was given a four year prison sentence after he lured two journalists to Cardiff from London on the promise of the scoop and on their arrival brandished a two-and-a-half foot sword and demanded the £1,000 cash they had brought with them.

Williams then locked the pair in the house and told them to stay put for at least ten minutes claiming he had an accomplice with a knife waiting outside.

The journalists eventually escaped through a skylight.
