At the High Court in Edinburgh on Tuesday, Lord Philip continued their case for risk assessment and placed the two men on the sex offenders’ register.

However, he warned them that he was considering imposing life sentences on the duo.

Travers, 29, and Gargaro, 33, who were both homeless, admitted assaulting the woman to her severe injury and robbing and indecently attacking her at her home on 10 February.
