Fam­ily busi­ness suf­fers from ac­tions of shamed Aitken

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - LOCAL NEWS -

David Aitken’s ac­tions have al­ready had a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on those in his fam­ily and who work in his busi­ness.

The Aitkens Bak­ery was put up for sale ear­lier this year and only two of its out­lets re­main open.

The fall­out from his of­fences has been felt by his ded­i­cated staff in other ways, too.

At least one of the firm’s fleet of vans has been van­dalised, with so­cial me­dia images show­ing the graf­fiti dam­age dis­cov­ered by one of Aitkens’ drivers.

The ve­hi­cle had been daubed with the word “paedo” while parked out­side a store on Men­zies Road in Torry.

The court heard yes­ter­day that Aitken had made ef­forts to mit­i­gate the dev­as­tat­ing im­pact on those close to him.
