Philip McLean admits abusing young girl

A man has admitted sexually abusing a young girl over a 12-month period at a house in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire.

Philip McLean, 41, started abusing the girl while babysitting, between April 2003 and June 2004.

The High Court in Glasgow heard the attacks started when the girl was 11 and continued at least twice a week.

McLean was caught after the girl told her mother. Judge Lord Brailsford deferred sentence for reports and remanded the father-of-two in custody.
