A teenager will have to return to Moray following a fight at Elgin bus station two years ago.

Elgin Sheriff heard that the offence took place well before the tragedy earlier this month and wasn't related to it.

The police were called to the bus station on May 24, 2022.

Officers found another youth at the scene who had clearly been injured.

This youth was taken to Dr Gray's Hospital, but refused to say who had attacked him.

CCTV footage was then obtained which showed him being repeatedly punched and kicked in the body.

Mark Williamson was subsequently arrested.

The 18-year-old, who no longer lives locally, admitted a charge of assault but was not present in court yesterday.

Iain Maltman, his solicitor, stated the teenager had recently travelled up from his home in Dunbarton only for the case not to go ahead.

The lawyer added that his client's partner was currently experiencing serious health issues.

Mr Maltman said: "He's grown up considerably – and he's had to grow up a lot very quickly.

"He's also taken himself away from the group of people he used to know."

Sheriff David Harvie adjourned the case until a date in May so Williamson could be in court for sentencing.

In a unrelated incident a 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder following the death of 58-year-old bus driver Keith Rollinson at the station on February 2.
