Hidden camera catches gamekeeper

A gamekeeper has been found guilty of killing a rare bird and setting traps illegally to capture two others on an Aberdeenshire estate.

George Mutch, 48, of Kildrummy, was accused of recklessly killing or injuring a goshawk and illegally taking away another goshawk and a buzzard in 2012.

It is one of the first times in Scotland that hidden camera footage, obtained by the RSPB, had been used in a case of this kind.

BBC Scotland's Steven Duff reports.
