A man has admitted bootlegging charges after hearing evidence from Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.

Robert Langley, 57, from Buckingham, originally denied three trademark and two copyright infringements after being caught at a record fair in Glasgow.

The seizure of CDs and DVDs two years ago included £11,500 of counterfeit Led Zeppelin material.

The band's guitarist last week told Glasgow Sheriff Court he would never sanction the sale of his material.

Page, 63, had told the trial how he had been asked up to Glasgow by British Phonographic Industry officials following the raid at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in May 2005.

The millionaire musician had already become aware of massive sales of pirate Led Zeppelin material across the world.

The haul taken from Langley included a £220 box set of a Led Zeppelin tour in Japan and a £40 set of a warm-up session in Denmark.

More prosecution witnesses were expected to take the stand in a trial that was set to last up to three weeks.

But, Langley - who previously walked free from three similar trials in England - changed his plea to guilty following Page's evidence.

As well as the Led Zeppelin discs, Langley also admitted having £1,790 of Rolling Stones material and £885 worth of music by The Beatles.

Langley, of Embleton Way, Buckingham, will be sentenced next month.

He also faces further another hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
