Disturbing images have been released showing a terrified busker being frogmarched to his death by teenage drug dealers, who tortured him in his flat and left him to die.

Musician Paul Pass and his pal Mark Andrews were kidnapped and terrorised by Abdulmalik Adua, 17, and Rezwan Islam, 19 who plied their victims with drugs.

When Paul's body was found, he had been stabbed in a main artery and battered with an acoustic guitar.

Although he managed to escape with his life, Mark was forced to drink his own urine and had washing up liquid forced down his throat.

A court heard that police raided the flat after Mark dialled 999 from a phone box following his escape.

CCTV footage from outside Paul's flat shows him leaving with the gang - unaware of what was going to happen to him.

A concerned member of the public, who saw the two addicts being led away against their will, also snapped the men as they walked through the street.

In an hour's time, Paul was dead.

The court heard the young thugs targeted Paul, 49, and plied him with drugs in exchange for taking over his home.

This crime is known as 'cuckooing' and is done by dealers so they can avoid the public attention.

The two addicts were lured to a supermarket in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, to meet the dealers, who had offered to sell them drugs, the court was told.

But the court heard that after the flat was targeted by three of Paul's friends who robbed Adua, from Woolwich, London, and Islam, from Gloucester, of drugs and cash, the dealers decided to take revenge.

Islam met up with Bilal Ebrahim Moosajee, 19, luring Paul and Mark to meet them under the pretence of supplying them with drugs.

Moosajee admitted kidnap and manslaughter, but Adua and Islam denied charges of murder, supplying Class A drugs and GBH.

However, a jury today convicted the pair of all charges against them following a trial at Bristol Crown Court.

They will be sentenced at a later date.
