A 15-year-old boy has been arrested and charged in connection with a racist attack in Edinburgh last weekend.

The arrest follows an appeal for witnesses after a 41-year-old Polish man was attacked in Niddrie House Square last Sunday.

Sergeant Kevin Smith said: “We are pleased to say that police received a good response from the public following an appeal and a significant witness came forward.

Inquiries are still ongoing but officers are following a positive line of enquiry to trace the others involved.”

A report will be sent to the Scottish Children’s Reporter.
