A man jailed for a "brutal" attack on a Polish man must wait to learn his fate for the attempted murder of a Polish prison inmate while in custody.

Keith Porter was jailed for nine years and four months last December for the attack on Jaroslaw Janeczek with a wooden mop handle in Aberdeen.

Porter was then convicted of a racially-aggravated assault in Aberdeen's Craiginches Prison.

He was due to be sentenced on Wednesday but a report was not ready.

Sentence was further deferred at the High Court in Edinburgh until next month.

Cleaner Mr Janeczek, 39, suffered serious internal injuries in the original attack in Alexander Drive last July.

His life was saved by the efforts of surgeons. Porter admitted attempted murder.

He had carried out the second attack while awaiting sentence.

Porter was found guilty of hitting 28-year-old Daniel Kaizer over the head with a 10kg weightlifting bar in the gym of Craiginches in a racially-aggravated attack.
