An ex-soldier has gone on trial accused of filming women while he allegedly raped and sexually abused them.

Shaun Jewiss, 41, denies two charges of voyeurism and allegations that he raped six different women over a seven-year period.

Jewiss, a prisoner at Barlinnie in Glasgow, has also pleaded not guilty at the High Court in Livingston to five charges of assaulting women, including two alleged incidents with a sexual element.

The offences are alleged to have been committed at various addresses in Edinburgh, Prestonpans and Dunfermline.

Jewiss has lodged special defences claiming that the women consented to sex with him and that he had acted in self-defence in one of the alleged assaults.

The trial continues.
