A man who admitted spray-painting Aberdeen City Council's Marischal College headquarters has been given a community payback order and told to pay compensation.

Christian Weir, 23, wrote "Ye Have Not Yet Done What Ye Ought" in June. The graffiti was successfully removed in August.

Marischal College had become the local authority's new base in 2011.

Weir was told to pay the council £1,750 at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

He is also to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

Weir had also admitted attacks on the council's Town House, the Union Square shopping centre and a bank in the city's Old Aberdeen area.

He was told to pay £360 and £60 for the Union Square and bank incidents respectively.
