An attacker who assaulted four women and a man in Shetland and Caithness over a 17-year period has been jailed.

Gary Thomson, 42, who lived in Whiteness and Wick, struck between 1996 and 2013.

He was convicted of serious assault charges at the High Court in Aberdeen last month.

Thomson was jailed for six years at the High Court in Edinburgh. Lord Bannatyne also ordered he be supervised for three years following his release.
