Marischal College vandalism
Aberdeen City Council's headquarters was vandalised

A man has appeared in court in connection with a spate of vandalism in Aberdeen - including the city council's historic Marischal College headquarters.

Christian Weir, 23, of Aberdeen, was charged with malicious mischief when he appeared at the city's sheriff court.

He made no plea and was bailed.

Marischal College, which became the local authority's new base in 2011, was daubed with graffiti last week.

Police earlier said a man had been arrested in connection with eight acts of vandalism, including those at Union Square and the University of Aberdeen campus.
