Four men have been charged after a police crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Aberdeen city centre at the weekend.

One was charged with possessing an offensive weapon, two were reported for drugs offences, and a 40-year-old was reported for urinating in public.

Grampian Police said a number of youths were also spoken to, and alcohol seized.

The force said it had been responding to concerns from the public.

A spokesperson said: "Clearly alcohol has no place in the hands of children and I would appeal to the parents to take steps to ensure that they know where they are at the weekend and what they are up to."
