A 15-year-old boy has appeared in court charged with murder following the death of a bus driver in Moray.

Keith Rollinson, 58, died at Dr Gray’s Hospital, Elgin, following an incident in the St Giles Road area of the town on Friday evening.

The 15-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged with murder when he appeared at Elgin Sheriff Court on Monday.

He did not enter a plea and was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.

A spokeswoman for Stagecoach North Scotland said at the weekend: “We are shocked and saddened by this news and our immediate thoughts are with the family and friends of our driver who has sadly passed away.”
