Perth Sheriff Court closed for fumigation

A Scottish court has been cleared and fumigated after a man who was charged with breach of the peace appeared to lose control of his bodily functions.

Proceedings were halted at Perth Sheriff Court after the man was spotted with a large brown mark on the rear of his trousers.

Staff then removed stained cushions before the court was recalled.

The court's public toilet was also closed due to a hygiene issue but it is unclear if the incidents are related.
