A man has been arrested and charged after an alleged incident in Cumnock at the weekend.

Emergency services were seen racing to Meagher Court in the town at around lunchtime on Sunday, August 27. 

Police say they were responding to reports of a "disturbance".

Three arrests were made at Meagher Court last weekend, after police carried out a series of targeted drugs raids.
