A man has appeared in court charged with murder following a fatal shooting outside an Edinburgh pub on Hogmanay.

Marc Webley, 38, and another man, 39, were attacked minutes before midnight outside The Anchor Inn on West Granton Road.

Emergency services attended and the seriously injured men were taken to hospital, where Mr Webley was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police Scotland launched a murder investigation and arrested and charged a fourth suspect on Thursday.

Gary Robertson, 20, made no plea to the murder charge when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Friday.

He has also been accused of assault to severe injury, danger of life and attempted murder.

Robertson, of Edinburgh, was remanded in custody and is expected back in the dock within the next eight days.
