A driver has been found guilty of causing the death of three passengers in a crash between a car and bus.

His passengers Dimitar Georgiev, 32, Zaharina Hristova, 37, and Silyan Stefanov, 42, all from Bulgaria, were killed.

Rachev, also a Bulgarian national, was convicted of causing death by careless driving on Monday following a trial at the High Court in Aberdeen.
