Two teenagers and a man have appeared in court charged with attempting to murder a shopkeeper in Cumbernauld.

The incident happened on Christmas Eve at a convenience store on Glenhove Road, in the Carbrain area.

Two boys, aged 14 and 15 were charged with assault to severe injury, attempted murder and robbery. They were released on bail.

Keiran Ruddy, 20, from Airdrie, faced the same charges and was remanded in custody.

The teenagers, who are from Cumbernauld, cannot be named because they are under 18.

All three appeared at Airdrie Sheriff Court but did not enter any pleas.

The 40-year-old shopkeeper remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
