A police sniffer dog caught a drugs courier carrying heroin with a street value of almost £100,000 at Aberdeen railway station, a court has heard.

The dog, called Rebus, followed Carl Crellin to a taxi after "passive scanning" in August last year.

First offender Crellin, from Liverpool, admitted being concerned in the supply of heroin when he appeared at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Judge Lord Bannatyne deferred sentence until next month.
