AN ABERDEEN councillor suffered bruising to his brain after allegedly being attacked on a night out.

Nathan Morrison, Aberdeen City Councillor for George Street and the Harbour, was assaulted by a reveller who, it is claimed, shouted homophobic abuse at a friend of Mr Morrison’s.

A CT scan revealed he has bruising to his brain.

He said the man “was walking by us and he made a remark at my friend.

“I turned round and said he must have been homophobic if he was going to shout that at us.”

It was when Cllr Morrison responded to the comment that he was allegedly attacked, knocked to the ground and had his head stamped on.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said they were looking into the alleged incident.
