Aberdeen man found guilty of incest with niece

An Aberdeen man has been found guilty of incest after having sex with his 15-year-old niece.

The 28-year-old had sex with the teenage girl in his bedroom in July last year.

The man - who cannot be named for legal reasons - went on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen accused of rape but was instead found guilty of incest.

Lord Jones deferred sentence for background reports to the High Court in Edinburgh on 29 April.
