A man has been charged with attempted murder after an incident in Fraserburgh, which was linked to a man dying after he was hit by a car.

Stephen Davies, 20, of Fraserburgh, made no plea at Peterhead Sheriff Court and was released on bail.

Earlier, Sebastian Biesek, 31, was named as the man who died after being knocked down on Friday evening.

It is understood Mr Biesek had been going to someone's aid when he was knocked down.

Police had been alerted to an assault in the same area, and described the events as "linked but separate".

Mr Biesek was originally from Poland, but lived and worked in the Fraserburgh area.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the collision to come forward.

Officers are especially keen to speak to anyone who may have seen Mr Biesek outside the Gray and Adams premises before the incident, particularly the driver of a car which stopped momentarily alongside Mr Biesek before driving off.

Officers would also like to trace the driver of a blue Ford Mondeo who stopped at the filling station and crossed to offer help, but left without leaving any contact details.
