Three schoolboys have been charged with wilful fireraising after an incident at a block of flats in the town centre on Friday.

The teenagers, two aged 14 and one 13-year-old, were arrested by police after scorch marks were discovered on a metal door at the entrance to the flats adjacent to the Antonine Pub in Townhead.

The incident happened around 4pm and the three boys have also been charged with vandalism.

No one was injured and police said the estimated cost of the damage to the close door was still to be ascertained.
