Two men aged 30 and 23 have been charged in connection with alleged hare-coursing offences in Aberdeenshire.

They have also been charged in connection with various alleged road traffic offences.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal and they will appear at court at a later date.

The offences happened between June 16 and 18 in the Rothienorman and Turriff areas.
