A married Prestonpans man who had a sexual relationship with a young teenager has been jailed at Haddington Sheriff Court.

Jonathan Diggory struck up a friendship with the girl while she was in foster care before the relationship turned sexual.

Diggory, 60 Fowlers Court, met the “vulnerable” 15-year-old through a work colleague and soon began sexual encounters with the teen at his house.

Diggory (22) admitted to having sexual intercourse with teenager on various occasions at his home between December 23 and January 29.

He also pleaded guilty to breaching his bail conditions by contacting the girl after being ordered by the court not to.
