A 21-year old man has appeared in private at Stranraer Sheriff Court charged with assaulting a man to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

David Watson, from Stranraer, made no plea or declaration.

It followed an incident in the town in the early hours of Sunday morning which left a 40-year-old man in Glasgow's Southern General Hospital.

Mr Watson was released on bail pending further examination.
