Stabbing trial begins

THE trial of a man who allegedly stabbed a senior accountant in Edinburgh has begun.

Leslie Cumming, an ex-chief accountant with the Law Society of Scotland, was attacked in a lane behind his Murrayfield home in 2006.

Robert Graham, 46, denies the attack, with the prosecution alleging Mr Cumming was set upon by the man who was partially masked.
