Woman injured in Bangkok mugging

Lydia and Dougie Riach
The couple moved to Thailand after Mr Riach was offered a job

A woman who moved from Inverness to Thailand has been seriously injured after being mugged on a Bangkok street.

Lydia Riach and her husband Dougie, a former director of Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC, had started a new life in South East Asia.

Mrs Riach was pulled to the ground after a man on the back of a motorcycle grabbed her handbag.

It was understood that she was on a life support machine following the weekend's incident.

Mrs Riach gave up her job at Tesco's Inshes store in Inverness about a year ago to join her husband in Thailand.

The couple who are both in their late fifties decided to start a new life in South East Asia after Mr Riach was offered a job in Bangkok.

He was one of the first directors of Inverness Caledonian Thistle and was closely involved with Culloden Rotary Club.
