Ian Ruddock denies murdering baby daughter Olivia

A man has gone on trial accused of murdering his five-week-old daughter.

Ian Ruddock denies compressing baby Olivia's chest and rib cage, shaking her repeatedly and inflicting blunt force trauma to her head.

The attacks are alleged to have taken place at the family home in Clarkston, East Renfrewshire, before the infant died in March 2011.

Mr Ruddock also denies assaulting two other children and a charge that he attempted to murder one of them.

The trial before Lord Bannatyne at the High Court in Edinburgh continues.
