A man has been found guilty of raping a woman in an Aberdeenshire town.

Kristopher Mayo, 31, had denied carrying out the attack in an Ellon house in February last year.

The High Court in Edinburgh had been shown photos of injuries the 33-year-old victim took herself after the attack. A jury convicted him on a majority verdict.

Judge Lady Scott remanded Mayo in custody ahead of sentencing later this month.
