Dragons Den star Duncan Bannatyne has offered £50,000 for someone to break the arms of a man who threatened his daughter on social networking site, Twitter.
The millionaire businessman received a series of tweets from a user who threatened to harm his daughter if the entrepreneur didn't pay him.
The user posted to the Scottish Dragon:
"I'm looking for a £35,000 investment to stop us hurting your Hollie. We'll bring hurt and pain into your life. We are watching her.
"She is very attractive. Want photos? Tweet using the hashtag £4money to confirm payment."
The Scottish entrepreneur the tweeted to his 370,000 followers:
"I offer £25,000 reward for the capture of the coward who calls himself @YuriVasilyev_ Double if his arms are broken first."
He later deleted the post and instead offered £30,000 for information leading to the arrest of the man behind the threats.
A statement from the tycoon said:
"My family is well protected, but I take any threat to them very seriously and will do all I can to ensure the person or people involved are caught."
