Twins who allegedly kept their older brother locked in an attic for 40 years so they could claim his pension have been arrested by Italian police.
Pasquale Tavoletti, 90, was found by officers in a dazed and confused state in appalling conditions after they broke into the room following an anonymous tip off.
Officers at Spinetoli, near Ascoli Piceno in central Italy, said Mario and Luigi, 78, had been helping themselves to Pasquale's £900 a month war pension since 1963.
