Perth councillor charged over child abuse images

A Perth councillor has appeared in court charged with possessing indecent images of children.

Michael Jamieson appeared from custody at Perth Sheriff Court, with the case heard in private.

It is alleged that he had images of child abuse at his home in Perth between November 2015 and March 2016.

The Conservative councillor, who was elected onto Perth and Kinross Council in May, made no plea or declaration during the hearing.

The case against him was continued for further examination and he was granted bail with special extra conditions to restrict his access to the internet.
