A 27-year-old Dundee man who shook a baby girl so vi­o­lently that she was left brain-dam­aged has been jailed for four years and eight months.

Dale Thom­son ad­mit­ted he at­tacked the child af­ter get­ting “stressed” play­ing his Xbox.

A judge at the High Court in Glas­gow heard Thom­son had been look­ing af­ter the girl on 1 April af­ter her mother went to work.

Thom­son later made a 999 call say­ing the girl’s eyes were “rolling” and that she was not breath­ing. He claimed to have found her “floppy” in her cot.
