Witness tells jury statement to police was false

THE case against Stewart folded, dramatically, after brief evidence from one witness Aaron White. He stated that he had retracted a statement he gave to police about a fire at his dad's house at 27 Oldwick Road, Wick, in December 2013. He told that court that the statement was untrue and could not remember what he had said in it.
At that point, fiscal depute Fraser Matheson said that the indictment was no longer in the public interest and he was withdrawing it.
Stewart was formally found not guilty.
