Ethan Hughes on assault charge after M8 taxi incident
A 23-year-old West Lothian man has appeared in court charged with an assault on a 34-year old man.
Ethan Hughes, from Livingston, made no plea during a brief court appearance and was remanded in custody.
He was charged with assault to injury and danger of life after an incident in a taxi on the M8 early on Saturday.
His appearance in court followed the death of a third man, Murray D'Angelo, 28, who died after being struck by two cars when he left the taxi on the M8.
The incident happened between the Hermiston and Gogar junctions of the motorway, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, at about 06:15 on Saturday.
