In the courts

One witness said he was driving on Skene Road, near Aberdeen Crematorium, when he saw a cyclist knocked off his bike after allegedly being assaulted by someone in a passing van.

Giving evidence, Craig Chisolm, 36, said: “It was a blue Transit-style van which slowed right down. I saw the upper half of someone hang out of the passenger side window and swing at the cyclist. It looked like he had been punched.”

Mr Chisolm said he initially passed the spot where the alleged incident happened before returning to make sure the cyclist was not seriously injured.

Following an adjournment, Ms Dyckhoff said
the Crown would not be proceeding with the case.
