A jury was sent home from a dangerous driving trial in Aberdeen yesterday due to a leaky roof.
Jurors arrived at the high court building for the second day of the trial of Paul Jessiman only to be told a leak had sprung in the court room in the Mercatgate annexe.
The 20-year-old is accused of mowing down an eight-year-old boy playing on his bicycle by driving a moped dangerously in the Cornhill area of Aberdeen on September 3, 2017.
Jessiman, of Gladstone Place, Aberdeen, denies the charge and insists he found the boy injured and tried to help him.
He is also alleged to have failed to report the crash to police.
It is expected the trial will resume today in the main sheriff court building.
