Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a man whose body was
discovered at a block of flats.

Dodou Leigh, 30, a Gambian national, was found dead in a flat in Hawkhill Close, Leith, last Tuesday.

George Thomson, 29, from Port Seton, and Roche Thomson, 24, from London, were charged with murder when they appeared on petition at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

They made no plea or declaration and were both remanded in custody. The case has been continued for further examination. Both men will appear in court again on December 18.
