Teenagers in court over Auchinleck airgun attack

Two teenagers have appeared in court in connection with an airgun attack near a school in East Ayrshire.

Kyle Allison, 18, from Ayrshire and a 15-year-old male, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were charged with assault.

Mr Allison was remanded into custody while the 15-year-old was given bail.

The charges follow an incident near Auchinleck Academy in which 11 pupils, aged between 12 and 16, were injured - none of them seriously.

Firearms officers were called to the town's Church Street just after 1330 GMT on Wednesday.

The case has been continued for further examination.
