A 26-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of an Aberdeen rail worker.
Clifford Anderson, 60, died on Sunday following an alleged attack in Jasmine Terrace in the city centre.
Police sealed off the street while they carried out investigations into the cause of his death.
Yesterday a 26-year-old man appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court in connection with the case.
David Bain, whose general address was listed as Aberdeen, has been charged with murder.
He made no plea and has been remanded in custody, ahead of another calling of his case at some point within the next eight days.
On Monday, police said there would be a “significant” presence of officers in the area while they carry out inquiries.
Mr Anderson had been taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following the incident on Jasmine Terrace, off King Street, on Sunday morning.
He died from his injuries later that day.
Mr Anderson’s family issued a statement paying tribute to him and said: “He will be sorely missed by all.
“Cliff was a happy, friendly person and a keen darts player.
“He was hard-working and dedicated to his job with ScotRail where he had been employed for over 30 years.
“We have been shocked by the recent events and it is obviously an extremely difficult time for us as a family.”
