A man accused of taking part in a drill attack in North Lanarkshire has been freed on bail.

Charles McCormack, 28, is charged with assaulting James Hanlon to his severe injury while acting with others on 22 August in Stepps.

He was remanded following an earlier hearing at Airdrie Sheriff Court.

After an appeal at the High Court in Edinburgh, Mr McCormack was granted bail with conditions, including that he be placed on a curfew.
