Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

THE for­mer leader of Aberdeen City Coun­cil has wel­comed the end of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into an as­sault on him.

As re­ported in later edi­tions of yes­ter­day’s Evening Ex­press, Sally Far­rer, pic­tured, punched coun­cil­lor John Ste­wart on the head twice at the city’s Kirk­gate bar.

The 37-year-old ad­mit­ted the at­tack at Aberdeen Jus­tice of the Peace Court and was fined £160 and banned from the pub for three months. Cllr Ste­wart said he was pleased the mat­ter was over.

Far­rer, whose ad­dress was given in court pa­pers as 4 Bob Cooney Court, Aberdeen, at­tacked Cllr Ste­wart on March 3. PO­LICE were to­day hunt­ing a man who al­legedly tried to fraud­u­lently buy cars.

David Charleson is al­leged to have tried to buy a grey Audi A4 and a blue Citroen C15 fraud­u­lently.

On Oc­to­ber 16 at Sel­bie Drive, In­verurie, it is al­leged he gave Colin Mor­ri­son a cheque for the Audi. It was al­leged Charleson re­ported the cheque as be­ing stolen.

On Septem­ber 5, at Sclat­tie Cres­cent, Bucks­burn, he is al­leged to have pre­tended to Les­lie Alexan­der he had enough fi­nance to buy the Citroen, be­fore Mr Alexan­der re­leased own­er­ship of the car.

Charleson, who was listed as hav­ing an un­known ad­dress, failed to ap­pear at Aberdeen Sher­iff Court and a war­rant has been is­sued for his ar­rest.
