A man charged with the murder of 15-year-old Paige Doherty has made a second private appearance in court.

John Leathem, 31, of Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, made no plea or declaration during the full committal hearing at Dumbarton Sheriff Court.

He was remanded in custody after the hearing, which comes less than a week after his initial appearance in the dock.

A spokesman for the Crown Office said Leathem's next court date is yet to be confirmed.

A search was launched when Paige, from Clydebank, was reported missing on Saturday, March 19, after she failed to arrive at her part-time hairdressing job.

Her body was found two days later in bushes at the side of Great Western Road, a busy route connecting Clydebank and Glasgow.
