Suspected cathedral vandal dies in custody

Police are investigating the death of a 19-year-old man in custody at a Highland police station at the weekend.

He was being held on suspicion of a vandalism attack at Dornoch Cathedral.

Northern Constabulary would not officially name the dead man because all his relatives had not been informed.

The death occurred yesterday morning at Dingwall police station, where it is understood [the man] was being held in connection with vandalism at the cathedral on Friday night.

In September of last year, he appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court and admitted vandalising the door of a Christian bookshop in Telford Street, Inverness.
