Four men have been charged with offences relating to workmen pretending to carry out repairs on properties in Edinburgh.

The charges come after 10 people were defrauded of almost £400,000.

The police investigation was part of Operation Aristotle, which had been looking into a number of bogus workmen incidents between 2009 and 2013.

The men aged 54, 26, 24 and 19 are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court later.
