Two men charged over 'homophobic attack' in Edinburgh

Two men are due to appear at court in Edinburgh in connection with a homophobic assault in the city.

The charges come after a 27-year-old man was attacked in Lady Lawson Street as he walked home from a nightclub on Sunday 19 September.

Lothian and Borders Police said a 27-year-old man would appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court later.

A 21-year-old man, accused of a homophobic breach of the peace, will also appear.
