A Montrose Academy pupil has been excluded from school following an alleged out-of-school incident involving a knife.

The teenager was reported to the Youth Justice Assessor following the incident last week.

A spokeswoman for Angus Council said: “The incident is subject of a police investigation and it is not appropriate for us to comment further.”

A Tayside Division spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 14-year-old boy has been charged and a report has been submitted to the Youth Justice Assessor following an incident at New Wynd, Montrose on Monday, August 22.”
