A 13-year-old boy has been charged in connection with a motorcycle crash during a parade in Aberdeen, which left several people injured.

The motorcycle collided with pedestrians in Union Street at the annual Torcher Parade on Saturday.

A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal on the 13-year-old.

Meanwhile, Graeme Hunter, 17, of Lerwick Road, Aberdeen, appeared at the city's sheriff court charged with culpable and reckless conduct.

Lewis Westlake-Tritton, also 17, of Ness Place, in Aberdeen, appeared in the same court charged with theft, culpable and reckless behaviour and road traffic offences earlier this week.

Both made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody for further examination.
