A man has been left seriously injured after an alleged assault near a harbour in Aberdeenshire.

Emergency services were called to Stonehaven at about 19:00 on Wednesday following reports of an incident.

The 21-year-old was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary suffering from serious injuries that left him unconscious. A 28-year-old man was arrested.

The High Street area near the harbour was closed for inquiries but later re-opened.
