A MAN has been arrested in connection with the abduction and sexual assault of a woman in Midlothian last month.

The 31-year-old woman was allegedly attacked after getting into a car she believed to be a taxi in the city centre and being taken to a lay-by near Boghall Farm, Hillend.

Officers confirmed that a 31-year-old man had been arrested and charged and was due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for the force thanked the public for their response to a previous appeal for information.
