He was also found guilty of sexually abusing a second girl, from the age of 12, between 1991 and 2000.

At the High Court in Glasgow, judge John Morris QC also placed Kinvig on the sex offenders' register.

'Serious offences'

Kinvig was cleared of a charge of raping the first girl when she was aged 13.

Jailing him, judge Morris said: "The jury convicted you of serious sexual offences against two females.

"They didn't accept the more serious charges against you.

"They convicted you of a catalogue of sex offences over a considerable period of time."
