A man has been cleared of setting fire to a popular city centre food stand.
Jamie Young was previously charged with wilfully setting fire to a tarpaulin covering the Auld Tram on August 21 last year.
However, prosecutors accepted the 23-year-old’s plea of not guilty when he appeared for a pre-trial hearing at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Young, of Sugarhouse Wynd, admitted culpably and recklessly trying to set fire to a cage of cardboard at Couttie’s Wynd on the same day.
On July 8, Young set fire to a bush in a car park on Brewery Lane on July 8 2019.
Following his guilty pleas, Sheriff John Rafferty deferred sentence on Young until February for social work reports to be prepared .
