A nursery worker from Lanarkshire who was jailed for eight years for filming himself abusing young boys has had his prison term cut by appeal judges.
Alexander Mortimer, 28, admitted assaulting the boys, taking indecent photographs of children, and possessing indecent images.
His lawyers successfully argued he was not given a large enough sentence reduction for his early guilty plea.
