Remove part of url and redirect

Hello, moved over to wordpress however want to retain the urls from my old cms however when using plugin such as custom permalinks and inputting for example: readnews.asp?id=100704 to be used as an url wordpress/server encodes the url and the exact url that I want does not redirect to the encoded verision thus making everyhting pointless.

I have decided that the best way for me to get my old urls back would be to use custom permalink plugin and change the url to just and have htacess remove readnews.asp?id= part of the url and permanent redirect. however I have tried and have searched all over the place on a way to do this but cannot find a way.

Any help would be great thank you!
