A PIZZA fraudster said to tip the scales at 40 stones has failed to turn at court for sentencing.

Liam Johnstone’s lawyer claimed the overweight offender had “extreme difficulty getting out of the house”.

The 21-year-old failed to appear at two earlier hearings after being ordered to pay compensation to Domino’s Pizzas in Bathgate.

He earlier pleaded guilty to obtaining almost £120 worth of goods by fraud.

Sentence was deferred at Livingston Sheriff Court yesterday for a further two weeks.
