"Four Britons were arrested in Portugal after a man was apparently kidnapped and tortured in the Algarve, it emerged today.
"James Ross, 26, from Wick in Caithness, disappeared after travelling to Portugal on 5 October.
"His ear, two fingers and three toes were chopped off and he was kept in a cage in a row over an unpaid debt, it was reported.
"A local newspaper, Correio da Manha, claimed Ross was tortured for 13 days before escaping from his captors in the village of Boliqueime, near the town of Loulé, on Monday."
