A man has been arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a woman in Edinburgh last month.

The 19-year-old was attacked in the Meadows area on Saturday 15 November as she returned from a night out.

A Police Scotland spokesman said a 22-year-old man had been arrested and charged following the incident.

He is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.
