A 29-year-old man appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court accused of a machete attack on another man in Gilbert Street in the city earlier this week.

Malcolm Macleod, from Inverness, made no plea to charges of attempted murder and possession of a bladed weapon and a knuckleduster.

He was committed for further examination by Sheriff Neil Wilson and his solicitor Marc Dickson successfully argued for bail for his client.

The attempted murder charge alleges that on January 15 he assaulted Jay Williamson or Mitchell by pushing him on the body, causing him to fall to the ground, pursue him and repeatedly strike him on the head and body with a machete all to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and danger of life.

Mr Williamson or Mitchell was due to appear in court on Wednesday but was released for further enquiries.
