Youth arrested over racist attack in Edinburgh

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

Police appealed for witnesses after a 41-year-old Polish man was attacked in Niddrie House Square on Sunday.

Police said they had received a good response from the public and a significant witness had come forward.

A report will be sent to the Scottish Children's Reporter. Officers are also following a positive line of inquiry to trace others.
