Missing Aberdeen sex offender arrested in London

A convicted sex offender who was reported missing from Aberdeen has been arrested in London, police have said.

Grampian Police issued an appeal after Derek Robertson, who was last seen on 24 February, allegedly failed to follow registration requirements.

The 46-year-old was found guilty of indecent assault in 2003 and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison after a trial in Forfar.

A force spokesperson said he would be returned to appear in court.
