A Fife man has appeared in court accused of attempting to murder another man by driving a car at him.

The incident is alleged to have occurred in Murray Knowes, Cardenden, on Sunday.

Kyle Campbell, 20, of Links Street, Kirkcaldy, appeared from custody on petition at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He is accused of assaulting a man by driving a vehicle at him.

It is alleged he mounted the pavement and struck him, then reversed at him attempting to strike him again, all to his injury and attempted to murder him.

Campbell faces further charges. It is alleged that, also on Sunday, at High Street, Kirkcaldy, he assaulted the same man by punching him on the face.
