Tommy Sheridan found guilty of perjury

Tommy Sheridan has been convicted of perjury following a 12-week trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

The 46-year-old former MSP was found guilty of lying during his successful defamation case against the News of the World newspaper in 2006.

He sued after it printed allegations that he was an adulterer who had attended a swingers' club

Sheridan has been given bail and faces a prison term when he is sentenced on 26 January.
