Four men in court over Aberdeen 'biker attack'

Four men from Aberdeen have appeared in court charged with an assault involving a group of bikers on Saturday.

They were Gavin Blair, 50, John Greig, 51, Alexander Mackie, 53, and Alistair Thompson, 47.

The men pleaded not guilty to assaulting two men at a BP petrol station in the city's King Street.

They were accused of repeatedly punching and kicking the two men as well as hitting them with a baseball bat and metal bar on the head and body.

The men also denied damaging another person's property at the service station by pushing a motorbike to the ground and damaging the paintwork by striking it with objects.

A trial was set for early next year and all four men were released on bail.
