Dumfries youth charged after flat evacuation

A 15-year-old boy is to be reported to the Children's Reporter after an incident which led to the evacuation of a block of flats in Dumfries.

Residents in the town's Golf Avenue had to leave their homes due to a fire and gas leak on Halloween.

They were taken to Summerhill Community centre as a precaution but were later allowed to return to their properties.

A police statement said a teenager would now be reported in connection with the incident.
