Two contractors who bribed Edinburgh City Council officials have had more than £266,000 confiscated by the Crown.
Kevin Balmer, 54, and Brendan Cantwell, 46, who were co-directors of Action Building Contracts, were found guilty of bribing council officials with cash and hospitality.
They did it in exchange for maintenance and repair contracts in 2015.
They previously spent more than two years in jail for the maintenance fraud of council buildings from 2006 to 2010.
They were jailed in June 2015: Balmer for two years and 10 months and Cantwell for two years and three months after pleading guilty to contravention of the Public Bodies Corrupt Practices Act 1889.
