Man charged over football disorder at Edinburgh derby

Police investigating a pub assault after an Edinburgh derby match last year have arrested a man.

The 44-year-old has been charged in connection with football-related disorder, police said.

Two men were seriously injured in assaults at Scotts Bar after the match between Hibs and Hearts at Easter Road on 26 October, ending in a 1-1 draw.

The man has been banned from entering licensed premises as he awaits his court appearance.

A Police Scotland statement said: "As a result of inquiries a 44-year-old man was detained on Tuesday and will appear in court next month charged with two serious assaults."
