A man responsible for the sexual abuse of girls as young as four in West Lothian has been jailed.

Alistair White, now aged 56, was convicted following a trial at the High Court in Edinburgh on Friday, 25 October where he was found guilty of indecent assault and four charges of lewd, indecent and libidinous behaviour.

Yesterday was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow to six years in prison and placed on the sex offenders register for life.

White, of Broxburn, West Lothian, was 13-years-old when he sexually abused a six-year-old girl in the town in 1977.

Two more young girls, aged five and seven, were subject to abuse in the late 1970s and a fourth girl, aged four, was abused when he was 24-years-old.
