TWO men accused of using knives and golf clubs to attack a man in a city street have been cleared of attempted murder.

Paul Stirling, 31, and Craig Stirling, 36, were charged with seriously injuring Alexander Mullett during an alleged November 2013 incident in Bonnington Road.

But at the High Court in Edinburgh on Thursday, a jury returned verdicts of not proven for both.

Paul Stirling and Craig Stirling, both prisoners at Saughton, had pleaded not guilty to the allegation.
