He was arrested and charged for these offences, and later charged with the rape of a man which took place in 2001.

An investigation had been conducted and a report was previously submitted to the Procurator Fiscal regarding the attack on the man, with the case reopened by police following the latest allegations.

Detective Inspector Yvonne O'Rourke of Forth Valley's Public Protection Unit said: "Archibald Weir perpetrated serious sexual and violent crimes against two teenagers.

"He completely violated their trust and, through their courage, Weir has finally been held accountable for his crimes and the victims have justice after many years.

"We take all reports of sexual crimes, regardless of the passage of time, very seriously and anyone with information about sexual offences can contact Police Scotland on 101 at any time."
