Man weeps after being found guilty of Aberdeen rapes

A man has been found guilty of a series of sex attacks on women in Aberdeen.

Ashley Boyne subjected two women to ordeals during which they were repeatedly raped and also carried out other indecent assaults.

Boyne wept was he led off to prison - on his 29th birthday - after being warned he faced a lengthy jail sentence.

Sentence at the High Court in Edinburgh was deferred. Judge Lord Uist said it was a "sordid and unpleasant" case.

Boyne was found guilty by majority verdicts of offences committed between 2001 and 2008.
