A 16-year-old has been jailed over the fatal stabbing of teenager Bailey Gwynne in Aberdeen last year.

A 16-year-old youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was convicted of culpable homicide last month after a jury at the High Court in Aberdeen ruled against a charge of murder following a five-day trial.

He was also found guilty of two other charges of having a knife and knuckledusters at the school.

At the High Court in Edinburgh on Friday, judge Lady Stacey ordered the killer to be detained for nine years, the Press Association reports.
