Fife lawyer David Blair Wilson in court over prison smuggling

A Fife solicitor has gone on trial accused of trying to smuggle mobile phones and drugs into Edinburgh's Saughton prison.

David Blair Wilson, 55, from Dunfermline, denies the charges against him and has lodged papers in court blaming another person.

Blair Wilson faces nine charges, all dating to 6 October 2011 when he was visiting a prisoner in Saughton.

The contraband items were allegedly hidden in a folder.

The articles listed in the charges include three mobile telephones, three SIM cards, cannabis resin, diazepam, drostanolone propionate, testosterone propionate and trenbolone acetate, along with 10 plastic syringes and buprenorphine tablets.

The charges allege breaches of the Prisons (Scotland) Act and the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The trial continues.
