Berwickshire man who had bestiality videos is admonished

A 22-YEAR-OLD Borders man who admitted possessing bestiality images over a five-year period has been admonished at Selkirk Sheriff Court after being of good behaviour for the past 12 months.

George Forsyth had previously pleaded guilty to having more than 200 films of extreme pornography featuring sexual activity between people and animals.

The films were on electronic devices seized from his Murrayfield home in the village of Gordon in February 2020.
