A second man has appeared in court in connection with an armed robbery at the Gleneagles Hotel in June.

Liam Richardson, 29, from London appeared from custody at Perth Sheriff Court on Monday.

He is charged with assault and robbery and possessing a weapon in a public place.

He made no plea or declaration during a hearing in private and was remanded in custody, while the case was continued for further examination.

Robert Fleming, 41, also from London, was charged earlier in August and will stand trial accused of having a role in the incident.

A police investigation is continuing into the robbery, which took place at a boutique inside the hotel.

Detectives said at least 50 designer watches worth £500,000 were taken.
