A man has appeared in court charged with rape.

An 20-year-old woman was allegedly attacked at the entrance to the Swanfield industrial estate, off Bonnington Road in the Leith area of Edinburgh, at about 4.30am last Saturday as she walked to work.

Krzysztof Jan Druzgala, 21, appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today in connection with the incident.

He was charged under section one of the 2009 Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act, the Crown Office said.

He made no plea or declaration and the case was continued for further examination.

Mr Druzgala was remanded in custody and is set to return to court again later this month.
