Knife attack rapist jailed for six years

A rapist who attacked a woman with a knife before sexually assaulting her days later has been jailed for six years.

Francis Drummond, 49, attacked the woman at a house in Armadale, in West Lothian, in October last year. At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lady Scott told him: "I have no doubt you pose a risk of serious harm to women."
