Man filmed rape on girl aged 10

A man filmed himself raping a 10-year-old girl, the High Court in Glasgow has heard.

John Ruth, a self-employed salesman, admitted raping the girl in a house in Shettleston on 18 November, 2007, and inducing her to commit sex acts.

He was caught after a relative found the video camera and played the tape before handing it over to police.

Lord Brodie, who was asked by the prosecution to watch the footage, will sentence Ruth next month.
