A MAN has appeared in court charged with assault, attempted robbery and being in possession of an article with a blade or point.

Scott Hood, 21, from Musselburgh appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court this morning (Tuesday) to face the charges.

He made no plea and was released on bail pending his next court appearance.

His appearance follows an alleged incident at the Nisa Loco shop on Lochbridge Road in North Berwick last Thursday.
