Paedophile bodyguard has sentencing hearing at Greenock Sheriff Court postponed

A perverted bodyguard who trawled the internet for sickening images of child sexual abuse has had his sentencing hearing at Greenock Sheriff Court postponed.

Thomas Brankin, 44 — a former RAF infantryman — had been due to have the matter dealt with yesterdy after a jury found him guilty of hoarding the material on a laptop computer.

But proceedings have been adjourned until next week because background reports on Wemyss Bay man Brankin are yet to be completed.

The pervert had more than 1,000 indecent images on the computer.

Brankin is due in court next Wednesday.
