An Aberdeenshire teacher has admitted internet sexual offences involving a teenage girl.

Mark Robertson, 37, of Portlethen Academy, admitted engaging in sexual activity with the girl between December 2007 and January 2008.

The physics teacher, of Cove Bay, admitted participating in sexual conversations on the internet.

Sentence was deferred at Aberdeen Sheriff Court for background reports to be prepared.

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesman said: "Mr Robertson remains under the employment of Aberdeenshire Council but is not currently working with pupils.

"Any action to be taken by Aberdeenshire Council would depend on the final outcome of the court case."
