A pervert was caught with an indecent video of a young girl on his iPhone.

James McDowall, 26, was snared with the sick recording at his mother's home in Bishopbriggs, East Dunbartonshire, on July 18, 2022.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard police executed a search warrant from the property.

An iPhone was recovered which McDowall made admissions to owning and provided the PIN.

A preliminary search of the device showed officers "material" on it and McDowall was arrested.

A further examination was carried out by cybercrime officers.

Prosecutor Heather Naismith told the court that a video lasting two minutes was recovered.

She said: "This was abuse of a female aged between three and five-years-old."

McDowall pleaded guilty today to possession of an indecent image of a child.

Sentence was deferred pending background reports until next month by Sheriff Martin Jones.

McDowall was put on the sex offenders register and granted bail meantime.
