AN EAST Lothian man has been caught with a horror collection of bestiality videos – and a movie showing a man having a “live moving drill” inserted into their genitals.

Scott Fleming was found to have downloaded the films to his mobile phone when police officers raided his home at Redburn Road in Prestonpans two years ago.

Cybercrime officers discovered four videos downloaded by 27-year-old Fleming showing adult men and women engaging in sexual activity with a horse, a pig and a dog.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court was also told that Fleming possessed a movie featuring a man having the sharp work tool placed inside his genitals.

Fleming pleaded guilty to possessing extreme pornographic material depicting bestiality between March 19 and May 10, 2021, when he appeared at the Capital court on Thursday.

But he escaped being placed on the sex offenders' register due to legislation that stated an accused could only be added to the list if they were jailed for more than 12 months.

Fleming appeared at court on a summary complaint, meaning he cannot receive a custodial sentence of that length.

His brother Gordon Fleming, 29, also appeared in the dock accused of possessing child sex abuse images but he had his plea of not guilty accepted by the Crown.

Prosecutor Debbie King told the court that police arrived at Fleming’s home with a search warrant at about 9.15am on May 10, 2021, and found him within the home along with his older sibling.

Ms King said that officers from the National Child Abuse Unit searched the property and seized electrical equipment including a phone, a laptop and an external hard drive.

The fiscal said that four MP4 videos were discovered on the mobile device showing “sexual acts between an adult female and a horse, a pig and an adult male and a dog”.

Ms King added that one film also featured “an adult female and an adult male inserting a live moving drill into another man’s penis”.

The court was told that Fleming was arrested and charged with possession of extreme pornography and made no reply to the caution after being taken to St Leonard’s Police Station in Edinburgh.

Defence agent Jay MacAskill said that she would reserve her mitigation to the sentencing hearing.

Sheriff Adrian Fraser said: “I won’t deal with you today because I want to obtain a criminal justice social work report on you to let me have further details into your background.”

Sentence was deferred for reports and a restriction of liberty order assessment to be prepared to next month.
