More teenagers have been charged following city centre disorder.

Police say a further teenagers have been charged following a disturbance in Inverness city centre last month.

Four boys - aged 16, 14, 13 and 13 - and three girls - aged 14, 13 and 13 - have all been charged in connection with incidents on Inverness High Street on Saturday and Sunday, September 23 and 24.

Another three boys - aged 15, 14 and 13 - were previously charged in connection with the same incidents.

All of the charges relate to public disorder and reports will be submitted to the relevant authorities in each case.

Inverness area commander Chief Inspector Colin Gough said: "I'm grateful for the support of the public, businesses and parents while these enquiries have been carried out.

"This investigation is nearing its conclusion but we are still working to identify others who may have been involved.

"Anti-social behaviour is disruptive for the public going about their business, while it also ties up police officers who may be otherwise engaged in helping people in need.

"With the school holidays about to start, I would again urge parents and guardians to make sure that they know where their children are, who they are associating with and what they are doing.

"Most young people do not come to the attention of Police Scotland and are very responsible citizens but unfortunately there is a small minority who are drawn into anti-social behaviour, in many cases through peer pressure, and we all have a part to play in making sure this does not happen."

Any information which has not yet been given to police can be passed on by calling 101, using reference NN22458/17.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
