Serial killer angus Sinclair guilty of World's End murders

Serial killer and rapist Angus Sinclair has been convicted of the murders of two teenage girls 37 years ago.

Sinclair raped and strangled 17-year-olds Helen Scott and Christine Eadie after a night out at the World's End pub on Edinburgh's Royal Mile in 1977.

The 69-year-old is the first person in Scotland to be retried for the same crime after an acquittal, following a change in the double jeopardy law.

Police believe he also killed at least six other women and girls, as Lorna Gordon reports.
