Fugutives' Mugshots To Be Screened At Airport As Holidaymakers Head To 'Costa Del Crime

MUGSHOTS of Scotland's two most wanted fugitives are being displayed on video screens at Glasgow Airport so they will be seen by thousands of holidaymakers jetting to Spain.
The faces of William Paterson, 31, and Derek "Deco" Ferguson, 47, are shown on screens at the busy airport.
Both men are wanted for murder and are thought to be hiding out in the Costa del Sol.
Ferguson has been hunted by cops probing two different killings.
They want to quiz him about the death of barman Tam Cameron, 49, who was shot in the chest outside the Auchinairn Tavern in Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow, in June 2007.
He has also been linked to the death of Billy Bates, who was also a suspect in Tam's murder.
Bates's body was discovered in an oil drum weeks after the shooting.
It has been claimed that Ferguson was smuggled out of the country by a gangland tycoon from the Calton area of the city.
Paterson is wanted over the execution of gangland enforcer Kevin "Gerbil" Carroll, who was gunned down outside a supermarket in the city's Robroyston area last year.
Crimestoppers Scotland hope the new campaign will help jog holidaymakers' memories and lead them to the men's hideouts.
Kate Jackson from the charity fought for the campaign to be launched.
She said: "The public is one of the greatest weapons in the fight against crime, and we are asking them to help track down two of Glasgow's most wanted individuals.
"We've had an overwhelming response to our 'most wanted' campaigns, resulting in many pieces of useful information on the fugitives sought."
In February, the Glaswegian told how Paterson and Ferguson were on a list of 10 suspected criminals hiding from police on the "Costa del Crime".
Investigators spoke out asking the public for help tracing the two fugitives.
The appeals were first launched in 2006.
The 50 appeals have led to the arrest of 38 suspects.
