A 29-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the alleged theft of a guitar from a Californian rock band at an Edinburgh hotel.

The instrument belonged to Le Blonde Dames, who were staying in the capital last week ahead of their performance at T In The Park at Balado in Kinross.

Officers recovered the custom-made £2,000 guitar after it was offered to a music store on South Clerk Street.

The man is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Friday.
